International Trade Law: An Interdisciplinary, Non-Western Textbook has been revised in its 4th edition, building upon the global successes of its predecessor editions. Truly a “world law” textbook applicable in any country, this edition offers a theoretical and practical approach to economics, politics, international relations, philosophy, and religion as they relate to international trade law. It may be used either in a two semester sequenced course, or as stand-alone volumes for distinct one-semester courses. Additional highlights of the 4th edition include:

• Coverage of vital domestic trade legislation on trade sanctions and export controls
• Emphasis on rising powers such as India and China, and controversies involving Iran, North Korea, and Russia
• Technical every-day issues, such as dumping margin and net countervailable subsidization rates, and critical economic sectors, such as IP and services
• GATT-WTO law and free trade agreements (FTAs)

The 4th edition has been thoroughly updated with new chapters covering: ethics, trade adjustment assistance (TAA), American trade history, Indian trade law and policy, WTO accession, like products, trade and energy, technical barriers to trade, transparency (TBT), non-application and waivers, balance of payments (BOP) crises, GATT morality exception trade facilitation, sanitary and phytosanitary (SOS) measures, compulsory IP licensing, trade remedies against non-market economies (NMEs), currency manipulation, trade sanctions, export controls, labor and the environment, trade and climate change, development economics, and Africa.

Each chapter is manageably sized and offers a user-friendly structure, allowing the flexibility of choosing the chapters that best serve the needs of a professor’s individual course. The topics in each chapter help students establish a fundamental foundation upon which to build their knowledge of international trade law.

Comprehensive Teacher’s Manual available. Includes sample course syllabi, questions, and answers.

Professors and adjunct professors may request complimentary examination copies of LexisNexis law school publications to consider for class adoption or recommendation. Please identify the book(s) you wish to receive, provide your institutional contact information, and submit your request here.
