Acclaim for second edition:

‘This Advanced Introduction provides an excellent succinct yet accurate summary of the international trade rules applicable, inter alia, to trade in goods, services, intellectual property, and investment. It also explores international standards, social issues such as development, environment, labour, human rights, and it addresses the institutional framework and the future of the world trading system. As an experienced practitioner in this field, I highly recommend this book to government officials, business people, and students who will all get a clear interdisciplinary tour d’horizon in the field of international trade.’

Gabrielle Marceau, University of Geneva, Switzerland and Senior Counsellor at the WTO
