This second volume of the Handbook of International Trade focuses on the economic analysis of international laws and institutions as they impact trade. The text addresses central issues in international trade including labor; environmental rights; preferential trade agreements; antitrust policy; patent rights; antidumping; trade liberalization; and foreign direct investment. This handbook begins with a comprehensive introduction by the editors that addresses the cross-fertilization of the international law and international trade disciplines and places the chapters in a broader context. Designed to be accessible to readers with various interests and academic backgrounds, and supplemented with an extensive bibliography, the Handbook of International Trade, Volume II is an indispensable resource to students and scholars alike.

?This unique collection of papers includes much that will be of interest to both legal and economic scholars of international trade policy. Both will find surveys of important topics as well as original pieces of analysis.? Alan Deardorff, University of Michigan
