The book provides an analytical overview of the World Trade Organisation's Anti-Dumping Agreement, as interpreted by WTO Panels and the Appellate Body. The Anti-Dumping Agreement is often perceived as being the most technical and controversial WTO agreement. While the basic concepts of dumping and resulting injury may appear deceptively simple, complex methodology related to the calculation of dumping and injury margins, as well as the very detailed procedural requirements that authorities need to comply with before taking anti-dumping action, make the Anti-Dumping Agreement difficult to apply and understand in practice. While the book of necessity goes into great detail about the intricacies of anti-dumping law and practice, it attempts to explain the various concepts in a relatively non-technical manner by means of simplified examples that are easy to grasp for experts and non-experts alike. The book also pays extensive attention to interpretations of the various provisions of the Anti-Dumping Agreement by WTO panels and the Appellate Body. There have been more WTO cases under the Anti-Dumping Agreement than under any other WTO Agreement, reflecting both the increased recourse to anti-dumping measures by WTO members all over the world and the complexity of abiding by the WTO rules. WTO Panels and the Appellate Body, called upon to review administrative determinations and aspects of national legislation, have done a remarkable job in interpreting the WTO rules. For WTO members, wishing to impose anti-dumping measures in a WTO-consistent manner, knowledge not only of the Agreement itself, but also of such interpretations, is therefore a must.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...as many a WTO scholar has discovered, it is almost impossible to comprehend the intricacies of the WTO dispute settlement system without a good understanding of the ADA...Vermulst takes a broad view of his subject-matter... and does an excellent job of integrating WTO case law into his explanation of the ADA. His elucidation of some of the trickiest concepts should make them clear even to a novice...While...the opportunity to reform the ADA may slip away, the WTO dispute settlement system is likely to keep resolving anti-dumping disputes and Members' agencies to keep imposing anti-dumping duties for the foreseeable future. This book is recommended to anyone wanting to understand what is going on. * Tania Voon, International and Comparative Law Quarterly, Vol. 56, No. 2, p. 463, 2007 *
Vermulst's commentary has the virtue of being thorough, accurate and written in an accessible manner despite the natural complexity of the issues discussed...the book still remains a valid reference for government officials, practitioners, scholars and business people interested in the area * Shandana Gulzar Khan and Fernando Pierola, Advisory Centre on WTO Law, World Trade Review Vol 8, 4 *
