Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is an enormously worthwhile book to read. Even if one does not wholeheartedly subscribe to the conclusions, the book starts one on a journey of consideration of these increasingly important and overlooked issues. All those who have a deep interest in public and private international law should undergo that journey."
--The Cambridge Law Journal

"There are academic books which become classics in their field shortly after publication. The two books to be reviewed here are such examples. They are already frequently cited and widely held to be authoritative."
--European Journal of International Law (reviewed together with Matsushita: The World Trade Organization)

"As a treatise the volume succeeds splendidly...a reference book for intellectual historians, for trade practitioners, and for scholars."
-American Journal of International Law

Reviews from previous edition:

"Andreas Lowenfeld has written the book many were hoping he would write. One must commend the author on [his] language and style. Lowenfeld has written a very important and delightful book."
--The Swiss Review of International Economic Relations
