Overview


The WTO is one of the most important intergovernmental organizations in the world, yet the way in which it functions as an organization and the scope of its authority and power are still poorly understood. This comprehensively revised new edition of the acclaimed work by an outstanding team of WTO law specialists provides a complete overview of the law and practice of the WTO.

The authors begin with the institutional law of the WTO (such as the sources of law and remedies of the dispute settlement system), then tackle the principal substantive obligations of the WTO regime (including tariffs, quotas, and MFN). They then move on to consider unfair trade, regional trading arrangements, and developing countries. In its final section the book deals with the consequences of globalization: firstly, where free trade is seen to be incompatible with environmental protection and, secondly, where WTO law confronts legal regimes governing issues of competition and intellectual property.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is a success not only because both theoretical and practical insights are put forward, but also because it reflects the geographical competence of the authors. Together they provide the reader with valuable information about the national laws and jurisprudence pertaining to trade in Japan, the USA and Europe."—Yearbook of European Law

"This is an important book that will become the benchmark for all that follow."—Legal Week

"There are academic books which become classics in their field shortly after publication. [This] book is such [an] example.[It is] already frequently cited and widely held to be authoritative."—European Journal of International Law (reviewed together with Lowenfeld: International Economic Law - 0-19-926411-2)

"If you want to learn about the WTO, this book is a great place to start. It is well written by acknowledged experts. It is a comprehensive overview of the subject and is written with a view to practice as well as academia ... For us impatient practitioners, it also has sensible and logical tables of contents and international legal sources."—Legal Week
