On December 11th 2001, China joined the World Trade Organization (WTO). China and the Long March to Global Trade examines the prolonged negotiations leading up to this historic event.
This edited collection assumes little prior knowledge of the Chinese accession process yet provides an in-depth examination of the related issues. It is therefore suitable for both those who require an introduction to the field and those with an existing interest in China and the World Trade Organization.

The analysis of China's integration and adjustment process is in-depth and insightful, and thus is of enduring value as a case study for other potential WTO aspirants and new WTO Members as well.' - Raj Bhala, Associate Dean and Harris Research Professor, The George Washington University Law School
