MEDIA REVIEWS
`This extensive collection, skillfully edited by David Deese, provides a comprehensive overview of the politics of international trade in the contemporary era. Bringing together an unusually diverse group of scholars from multiple disciplines, approaches, and countries, the volume examines trade both on its own terms and in relation to a host of other topics, including human rights, the environment, the internet, and more. Essential reading for experts and students alike.' -- David A. Lake, University of California, San Diego, US
`Since the global financial crisis, policymakers and researchers need to revisit the fundamentals of global governance. The Handbook of the International Political Economy of Trade tightly edited by David Deese is an indispensable roadmap and guide to the rapidly evolving multilateral system of trade - its institutions, processes, regulatory rules and trade politics. In particular students will find the diversity of perspectives and approaches of the contributors essential to grasp the dynamics of the world trading order being reshaped by regional trade agreements, the rise of emerging market economies, global value chains and new trade strategies. The Handbook is packed with information, analytical insight and case studies from an international political economy perspective. It makes for essential reading about the interface between trade, global governance and domestic politics.' -- Daniel Drache, Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies, York University, Toronto, Canada
'The less the World Trade Organization can deliver, the more national governments engage in bilateral and regional trade agreement, and thus encompassing negotiations of trade deals have become prominent in the last couple of years. Trade policies today are not so much about tariffs any longer than they are about market access, intellectual property rights, foreign direct investment rules, and regulatory practices. This volume, edited by David Deese, is timely, and covers exactly such relevant areas of trade policy. Students and practitioners alike will benefit from the deep analytical insights.' -- Kurt Huebner, Jean Monnet Chair for European Integration and Global Political Economy, The University of British Columbia, Canada
