View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This new textbook on world trade law offers a unique perspective on this important subject in a number of ways. It is the first book to combine the best aspects of both the casebook and legal analysis approaches, providing both detailed explanations and analysis of the law to help understand the issues as well as case extracts to offer a flavour of the judicial reasoning of trade adjudicators. Moreover, the book is truly global in outlook, being equally useful for students of international trade law in the UK, Europe, the US, Asia and elsewhere in the world. For instance, where domestic regulatory issues come into play, the book examines a variety of country practices, to illustrate how the rules apply around the world. The book is written with students in mind and provides an ideal learning tool to appeal to students across the globe. In this regard, the authors draw on their diverse experiences and geographic backgrounds - with one primary author based in the US and the other based in Hong Kong, with additional authors based in the US and UK.

As the WTO takes on an increasingly important and visible role, we are fortunate to have World Trade Law as a resource. The book is executed with intelligence and the research and discussion are rich and detailed, and it will no doubt prove to be an invaluable tool for students and practitioners who have an interest in the WTO. Since it is written specifically for students, the book's straightforward style and manner of presentation would make it an excellent book for teaching purposes.Bashar Hikmet MalkawiWeb Journal of Current Legal Issues2009Because of its wide coverage, this book may not only be limited to students; it is equally relevant to professors, practitioners, researchers, government officials and politicians who need to comprehend the principles and practices of World Trade Law. The book is not only comprehensive in its coverage but it is also scholarly, informative, challenging and innovative. It should certainly belong on the shelf of anybody who is seriously interested in World Trade Law. Its real value, distinguishing it from similar texts, lies not only in its comprehensive coverage of the principles of WTO law and policy but also in the wide range of materials, including excerpts from a broad range of writers and commentators, and cases.Mosleh Ahmad At'tarawnehJournal of International Trade Law and PolicyVol 7, No 2, 2008Simon Lester and Bryan Mercurios new international trade law textbook is likely to find favor with instructors in many of the law faculties in the United States and Europe where a basic international trade law course is being taught on a regular basis...includes extensive and generally well thought out questions for students at the end of each chapter...The comparative approach evident in various chapters is welcome.
