International experts from law, economics and political science provide in-depth analysis of international trade issues. Attorneys, economists and political scientists adopt a common viewpoint, entitled 'transcending the ostensible'. This approach directs particular attention to the possibility that WTO legal institutions, like other international legal institutions, will function in unexpected ways due to the political and economic conditions of the international environment in which they have been created, and in which they operate. A range of trade problems are considered here. Topics include the constitutional dimensions of international trade law, adding subjects and restructuring existing subjects to international trade law, the legal relations between developed and developing countries, and the operation of the WTO dispute settlement procedure. This will be an essential volume for professionals and academics involved with international trade policy.

'Like Products' in International Trade Law

Towards a Consistent GATT/WTO Jurisprudence

The obligations of international trade law hinge upon the question of what constitute "like products". Trade disputes will often involve an examination of whether the products in question are in competition with one another. The most common term used for this test is to ask whether they are "like products" - that is to ask whether products are sufficiently similar for consumers to see them as substitutable - and thus whether they are subject to the rules of the WTO and GATT. The central thesis of this book is that despite the centrality of the principle of 'like products' to the WTO, it has not been consistently interpreted, and therefore the risk of discriminatory practice remains. The author, through analyzing legal and economic arguments, sets about defining the concept of 'like products' in such a way as to consistently give effect to WTO aims.

Dictionary of International Trade Law is the first of its kind book. This Dictionary defines and explains in detail hundreds of terms - common and uncommon ones - used in the field, from the "ACU" and "CMAA" to "TIFA" and the "WCO." Many entries include organizational charts (e.g., the structure of the new Department of Homeland Security) and tables (e.g., of precedent-setting cases on zeroing). Many entries also provide references for further research. Notably, the Dictionary has three Annexes - • SAnnex A contains 25 maps, of the world, regions, and countries, from the Artic to Zambia, not only showing states and provinces (e.g., in Brazil and India), but also highlighting disputed territories (e.g., in Kashmir) ● Annex B sets out research tools, such as tables on milestones in Chinese history (from early dynasties through modern legal reforms), EU institutions, U.S. trade statutes, and useful websites on trade law. • SAnnex C has data on U.S. FTAs, including votes by political party in Congress, on immediate versus deferred duty-free treatment for goods, market access for services, and government procurement thresholds. In sum, the 600-page Dictionary aims to help students, scholars, and practitioners through the complex jargon of trade. Like the Textbook, International Trade Law: Interdisciplinary Theory and Practice, the Dictionary is inter-disciplinary, paying special attention to practical terms and theoretical concepts from international economics and development studies. Among the highlights of the second edition of the Dictionary are: • Several dozen brand New and Expansive entries for even more thorough coverage! • Updated and expanded material for hundreds of existing entries. • Several hundred Suggestions for Further Research. • Compilation, synthesis, and analysis of data on every one of America's Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), and of every one of Japan's FTAs, all thoroughly updated since the first edition. • Updated historical information about milestones in the economic development of the European Union (EU) and China. • Revised maps for every region of the world, and several major countries. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

International Trade Law: Interdisciplinary Theory and Practice has been completely revised in its Third Edition, building upon the global successes of its two predecessor editions. Truly a "world law" Textbook applicable in any of the approximately 152 WTO countries, the Third Edition places much emphasis on coverage of developing and least developed countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, highlighting the significance of their demographics, politics, culture, and economic dynamism. Europe and the high-profile trade disputes between the United States and the European Union is another chief focal point of this distinctively comprehensive book. Notably, the Textbook avoids two pitfalls: an American-centric approach, and the suggestion that international trade law is only about the WTO. The Textbook contains 50 Chapters dedicated to all aspects of the field, from ancient and medieval views about the morality of trade to the mysteries of adjustments to Constructed Export Price in a dumping margin calculation. The Textbook covers fully the Doha Round and the new, post-9/11 trade security rules. It includes 6 Chapters on free trade agreements (FTAs), 2 Chapters each on agriculture, services, and intellectual property (IP), and plenty of excerpts from key WTO and U.S. court cases. Overall, the Textbook is both a tour de force and user friendly. Not surprisingly, the Textbook has been used at roughly 100 law schools around the world, and translated into Vietnamese. 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. Useful notes appear throughout the text, carefully constructed and organized to guide and challenge students, without abandoning them to trying to play "find-the-ball" on their own, piecemeal. The author sets forth five clear and fundamental themes in the preface which resonate throughout the text, providing not only coherence and integration, but also the passion that will ensure lively classroom discussion and debate. The author covers hot topics, such as protectionism, regionalization, labor, the environment, and sanctions, from both a practical and theoretical standpoint. Interesting and substantive interdisciplinary readings provide further penetration of a subject on not only the economics of international trade law, but on perspectives brought to the field by political scientists, international relations specialists, and philosophers.
