International Trade Law: An Interdisciplinary, Non-Western Textbook has been revised in its 4th edition, building upon the global successes of its predecessor editions. Truly a “world law” textbook applicable in any country, this edition offers a theoretical and practical approach to economics, politics, international relations, philosophy, and religion as they relate to international trade law. It may be used either in a two semester sequenced course, or as stand-alone volumes for distinct one-semester courses. Additional highlights of the 4th edition include:
• Coverage of vital domestic trade legislation on trade sanctions and export controls
• Emphasis on rising powers such as India and China, and controversies involving Iran, North Korea, and Russia
• Technical every-day issues, such as dumping margin and net countervailable subsidization rates, and critical economic sectors, such as IP and services
• GATT-WTO law and free trade agreements (FTAs)
The 4th edition has been thoroughly updated with new chapters covering: ethics, trade adjustment assistance (TAA), American trade history, Indian trade law and policy, WTO accession, like products, trade and energy, technical barriers to trade, transparency (TBT), non-application and waivers, balance of payments (BOP) crises, GATT morality exception trade facilitation, sanitary and phytosanitary (SOS) measures, compulsory IP licensing, trade remedies against non-market economies (NMEs), currency manipulation, trade sanctions, export controls, labor and the environment, trade and climate change, development economics, and Africa.
Each chapter is manageably sized and offers a user-friendly structure, allowing the flexibility of choosing the chapters that best serve the needs of a professor’s individual course. The topics in each chapter help students establish a fundamental foundation upon which to build their knowledge of international trade law.
