'An interesting new approach to global trade issues - part textbook, part critique of mainstream policies and part alternative perspective on where we might go from here. All of these angles are desperately needed and they rarely come together in mainstream texts. Here they do, updated for the main debates both in the corridors of power, the halls of academia and the meeting rooms of NGOs. This makes the book extremely valuable.' - Graham Dunkley, author of The Free Trade Adventure: The WTO, the Uruguay Round and Globalism: A Critique (2000) and Free Trade: Myth, Reality and Alternatives (2004)
