In A Social Theory of the WTO, Jane Ford uses a social theory or constructivist approach to show that developing countries played a critical role in strengthening multilateralism in the World Trade Organization. By adopting a new role in trade negotiations during the Uruguay Round negotiations, developing countries helped to strengthen trade rules and change the trading culture of limited multilateralism. 1 Takes an innovative approach to explaining change in the multilateral trade regime and the rise of the WTO 2 Challenges traditional theoretical approaches 3 Includes new empirical research JV

Taking a feminist approach, the book argues that treatment failure produces an ongoing and profoundly gendered burden of discursive work which is oriented towards locating the self, and the engagement with IVF, as 'normal'. 1 Her novel focus on treatment failure addresses a gap in the current literature on IVF 2 Based upon unique and extensive interview data 3 Articulates an original feminist approach to IVF 4 Findings of relevance not only to IVF, but also to other new genetic technologies such as stem cell research JV

New educational markets emphasized school diversity and parental choice rather than social equity through common schooling, and they were criticized for declining standards. The book also considers government education policies and their regional manifestations. 1 Respected authors - well known outside of Australia and New Zealand 2 International appeal - will be of significant interest to the UK and ROW markets in education and history This book is a very significant contribution to the important series of studies edited by Barry Franklin and Gary McCulloch. It breaks new ground by providing an authoritative and thoroughly researched account of the rise and fall of comprehensive schooling in New South Wales." - Roy Lowe, University of Birmingham "One of the important contributions the work of Campbell and Sherington offers is that it draws on a wide range of international literature and uses contemporary examples from England and the US to demonstrate the extent to which the comprehensive public high school in NSW was part of and contributed to the emerging tradition of secondary schooling in westernised nations. This text therefore has international appeal." - Tanya Fitzgerald, Unitec Institute of Technology, Auckland, New Zealand "Craig Campbell and Geoffrey Sherington make a major contribution to studies of the comprehensive high school, presenting a richly detailed, highly nuanced, and wonderfully thought provoking assessment of this institution in Australia." - Jeffrey Mirel, University of Michigan
