About the Authors
  • This book contains a selection of essays and articles by John H. Jackson previously published over four decades and now collected together into one volume. Each article has been selected for its continued timeliness and relevance to contemporary issues in international trade. Particular attention has been given to making available articles that have previously been less accessible. For the most part articles are republished in their original form but, where appropriate, the author has clearly marked some omissions and added updating material. An indispensable addition to every international trade library.

    • Globally respected scholar's evolving views on a number of institutional and jurisprudential questions concerning the world trade system as it has grown over the last few decades
    • Suitable for use on international economic law and international economics courses
    • First-time publication of any of these essays and articles within book form
