Overview

The editors have succeeded in bringing together an excellent mix of leading scholars and practitioners.

No book on the WTO has had this wide a scope before or covered the legal framework, economic and political issues, current and would-be countries and a outlook to the future like these three volumes do.

3000 pages, 80 chapters in 3 volumes cover a very interdiscplinary field that touches upon law, economics and politics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"The legal treatment is comprehensive (to say the least)"

"The contributors overall do an admirable job of weaving the WTO panel and Appellate Body cases into the analysis of the various regimes covered".

"A major volume of work on the WTO and probably the larges single-published reference for the WTO."

"Excellent value for the researcher and the instructor"

"A very large but also highly detailed presentation of the multilateral system at the WTO."

"Will certainly deserve a position as a classic reference on international economy in the WTO."

(Legal Issues of Economic Intergation, 2006)
