Editorial Reviews

Jagdish Bhagwati
As preferential trade agreements have proliferated, modern economists have turned their attention to the compelling question of the potential they hold for damaging the multilateral world trading system premised on nondiscrimination instead. By contrast, Mansfield and Milner, two of their generation's most creative political scientists, lead a distinguished team to explore the reasons why this proliferation has occurred. The result is an exceptionally insightful volume that both economists and political scientists cannot afford to ignore.
