The key issues relating to China's accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) are analyzed by leading scholars in this volume. Will China's membership burden the WTO's dispute settlement system? What effects will it have upon liberalization of telecommunications, textiles, banking, insurance, copyright and patent protection within China and the rest of the world? This book considers whether the inclusion of a major non-Western power, and the tenth largest trading nation in the world, will alter the international trading system, as well as encourage domestic legal and economic reform in China.
