Reviews & endorsements
Advance praise: 'This is a stellar work on WTO Law, which I have been using to great effect with my students since the very first edition. It keeps getting better, without growing out of bounds. This in itself is a remarkable achievement given the increasing breadth and depth of WTO jurisprudence. Warmly recommended.' Marco Bronckers, Universiteit Leiden, The NetherlandsSee more reviews
Advance praise: 'The new edition of The Law and Policy of the World Trade Organization secures its place as the pre-eminent textbook on the legal principles underpinning the purpose and functioning of the WTO. Even more exhaustively researched than the previous edition, this volume provides in-depth, contextualized discussion broken down into thoughtfully organized chapters along with concise and timely commentary reflecting recent developments in case law and beyond. Van den Bossche’s and Zdouc’s expansive knowledge of WTO law is unparalleled, just as their ability to convey often difficult concepts with clarity and charisma is industry-leading. This book is highly recommended as an invaluable resource for international trade law scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers at all levels.' David Collins, City University of London
Advance praise: 'This revised and updated edition continues to provide a vital resource for both teaching and research in the field of WTO law and practice.' Mary Footer, University of Nottingham
