Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...Geradin has carefully researched and compared the relevant U.S. and European trade and environmental law and shows that there is not necessarily only one solution to various problems regarding the relationship between trade and environment. His well-structured book demonstrates the advantages of a comparative approach and encourages us to search for the best solution to each problem." Julian Kokott, The American Journal of International Law

"This is clearly the work of a scholar treading into new and exciting terrritory." Virginia Davis, International Journal of Legal Information
