"This book provides a comprehensive account of the sub-regional integration agreements in the Americas. These initiatives have become increasingly important given the demise of the FTAA and the on-going stalemate in multilateral trade negotiations. The book covers the subject from three distinct levels of analysis (strategy, implementation and outcomes). This informative volume is of benefit for all those interested in the current state of trade negotiations and regional integration, practitioners and non-practitioners alike." Esteban Perez Caldentey (Economic Commission For Latin America and the Caribbean)
