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.
