Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Lee’s thoughtful analysis offers... sociological, anthropological, economic and legal perspectives, as he evaluates how the computer and electronic commerce are redefining the international arena. This book gives everyone endless material for dialogue on how we should shape the future of trade liberalization."
From The Critics
In Exploring The Gaps: Vital Links Between Trade, Environment And Culture, James Lee (director of the Trade Environment Database Project) focuses on the interrelationship and mutual influences and impacts between economic, ecological, and social factors. The rapid pace of globalization is seemingly outstripping human abilities to absorb the changes imposed by telecommunication, commerce, and resource exploitation. Very highly recommended and informative reading for students of environment issues, international trade, and cross-cultural studies, Exploring The Gaps features contemporary cases (including examples of endangered species) to underscore the dilemmas within environments and cultures. The reader will also be offered a strategy and approach for meeting the challenges that continued globalization presents.

Meet the Author

James R. Lee is the Associate Director for Technical Support and Training for the Center for Teaching Excellence and a faculty member in the School of International Service at American University. As a faculty member, he was one of the first at AU to use the Web as part of teaching. Since then, he has created two online journals "Trade Environment Database" (TED) and the "Inventory of Conflict and Environment" (ICE), and a distance- learning project, the Global Classroom. While he has an abiding interest in the use of new technology, he firmly believes ideas must lead the way. Under a faculty exchange grant, he is a part-time staff member at the US Environmental Protection Agency, working on policy and its relation to international environmental data and statistics. An avid gardener, he is interested in cultivation and how things grow.
