Trade and Development in a Globalized World examines how the unfair trade regulations of advanced countries affect developing societies. The most prominent of these regulations are those pertaining to dumping and subsidies. As antidumping and antisubsidy laws have proliferated, they have increasingly undermined the trade-related development strategies of poor countries. To determine how developing states attempt to cope with the problems created by unfair trade rules, Rothgeb and Chinapandhu conducted a case study of the Thai–U.S. trade relationship. The results, revealed here, show that unfair trade regulations have evolved substantially from their origins as devices for ensuring that international markets can not be manipulated to confer advantages upon selected exporters and that these regulations now serve as the primary protective mechanisms for guaranteeing that advanced country producers will not face competition from developing country industries.

Editorial Reviews

Bret Billet
Trade and Development in a Globalized World is a authoritative and succinct investigation of developing countries and the problems they encounter when implementing export for growth strategies during the new protectionist era. The insightful analysis of key Thai government and private industry actors further highlights the asymmetrical relationship with the U.S. and the specific problems that developing countries face in combating unfair trade regulations. This is a significant contribution to the literature on unfair trade practices and, generally speaking, international development.
Frank C. Zagare
Trade and Development in a Globalized World is an important study that deserves close scrutiny from political economists and international security experts. Based in part on extensive interviews with government officials and private industry groups, Rothgeb and Chinapandhu provide an insightful and very readable account of the Thai–U.S. trading relationship that clearly and concisely illustrates the many roadblocks that developing nations face as they seek to redress unfair trade conditions. Their striking conclusions and provocative policy recommendations are sure to have an impact on decision-makers in both the developing and the developed world.
