As conflict and cooperation among states turn to an ever greater extent on economic issues, this treatise presents a comprehensive exploration of the legal foundations of the international economy. The subjects covered include: the World Trade Organization and its antecedents; dumping,subsidies, and other devices that alter the market; the International Monetary System, including the collapse of the Bretton Woods system, the debt of the developing countries, and the rise of the Euro; the law of transnational investment, including changing perceptions of the rights of host states and multinational enterprises; economic sanctions,including embargoes and boycotts; and the international aspects of competition law and of the law of the environment. Professor Lowenfeld brings to his task a life-time of practice and teaching experience to produce a book that will be of use to international lawyers and non-specialists alike.
Andreas Lowenfeld is the Herbert and Rose Rubin Professor of International Law at New York University

Editorial Reviews

`...this is an enormously worthwhile book to read. Even if one does not wholeheartedly subscribe to the conclusions, the book starts one on a journey of consideration of these increasingly important and overlooked issues. All those who have a deep interest in public and private internationallaw should undergo that journey.'Pippa Rogerson, The Cambridge Law Journal
