Overview

Written in the context of contemporary theoretical debate in international political economy, this book overturns a number of myths about the political economy of trade in one of the oldest areas of industry. In this way the author systematically links the changing characteristics of the trade regime to structural change and adjustment in global industry. He argues that state policy processes, international regimes and the industrial adjustment strategies of firms must be conceptualized as integrated processes of governance cutting across levels of analysis in the global political economy.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Many might expect a book on the contemporary textile industry in highly industrialized countries to be very slender, epitaph-length even. Undaunted, Underhill presents a case-study spanning the 20 years before the end of the Uruguay Round, and distills a novel explanation of the rise and fall of protectionism in the textile and clothing sector. He links both protectionism and eventual deregulation to the same ongoing process of industrial adjustment. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
