...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 international law should undergo that journey. * Pippa Rogerson, The Cambridge Law Journal *
There are academic books which become classics in their field shortly after publication. The two books to be reviewed here are such examples. They are already frequently cited and widely held to be authoritative. * European Journal of International Law (reviewed together with Matsushita: The World Trade Organization: Law, Practice, and Policy - 0-19-876472-3) *
... as a treatise - as an exhaustive analysis of the lex lata of international economic law - the volume succeeds splendidly...a reference book for intellectual historians, for trade practitioners, and for scholars.. * American Journal of International Law *
This volume is...impressive in its extensive coverage of all main areas of international economic law and its institutions. Case-law abd practice are presented, including precious little-known information on practical arrangements collected through political statements and other difficult-to-find sources...This volume [is] not only a fundamental reference and source book but also a must for any comprehensive approach to the subject matter. * Giorgio Sacerdoti, Italian Yearbook of International Law, Vol XVIII *
The material is presented in a style which is atypical for law textbooks, whether in international law or any other sphere of law, which tend to focus on a systemic explanation of the rules with references to case law or historic background only when essential. In contrast, Lowenfeld devotes much space to developing the context in which legal principles were established. This method is beneficial * David Collins, City University London, The Modern Law Review *
