This book contains a selection of essays and articles by John H. Jackson published over four decades and now collected together into one volume for the first time. Each article has been selected for its continued timeliness and relevance to contemporary issues in international trade. Particular attention has been given to making available articles which have previously been less accessible. For the most part articles have been republished in their original form but, where appropriate, the author has clearly marked some omissions and added updated material.
