This second edition readdresses and moves beyond the discussion of the GATT presented in the first edition to assess in significant detail every trade in goods agreement at the WTO, both multilateral as well as plurilateral. The book is written to be accessible to those new to the field, with an authoritiative level of detail and analysis that makes it essential reading for lawyers and economists alike.
Petros Mavroidis, the leading trade jurist of his generation, has written an astonishingly effective text which has trained large numbers of the best trade lawyers recently, as I can testify having worked with it in Columbia Law School classes where I have co-taught WTO Dispute Settlement Law for some years. The second edition makes it yet better; no rival text comes remotely close in its erudition and its comprehensiveness. (Jagdish Bhagwati, University Professor, Economics and Law, Columbia University)Petros Mavroidis is to International Trade Law is what Lawrence Tribe is to American Constitutional Law: An exacting law book which is also a penetrating book about the law. Doctrine and theory, text and context, are interwoven into the most authoritative work in the field. (JHH Weiler, Director, the Jean Monnet Centre for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice, NYU School of Law.)Petros Mavroidis is one of a handful of GATT/WTO legal scholars with a deep knowledge and understanding of economics and unique for his collaboration with economic scholars. This book offers the best treatment yet of the WTO law in goods trade, which will appeal equally to lawyers and economists. A veritable tour de force! (André Sapir, Professor of Economics, Université Libre de Bruxelles, and Former Economic Advisor to the President of the European Commission)The second edition of Petros Mavroidis' treatise on GATT provides an up to date treatment of its core features and leading cases, thoughtfully blending history and legal doctrine with economic considerations that help to explain its logic and structure. Suggestions for reform may be found throughout as well. No serious student of the WTO can afford to be without this book. (Alan O. Sykes, James and Patricia Kowal Professor of Law, Stanford Law School)
