Since 1988, when the EC Commission issued its proposal for a Second Banking Directive containing the (in)famous reciprocity clause, the subject of the external dimension of the European internal market has figured high on the agenda of both political and academic discussion of the future of Europe. The criticism that the EC is constructing a Fortress Europe may have abated, but numerous questions continue to be raised about the EC's external trade policies. This book complements existing works on the relationship between the internal market and international trade by providing, for the first time, a systematic legal analysis of the external dimension of various instruments aimed at completing the internal market. Although intended to be a contribution to the academic analysis of this subject this book deals with many topical and concrete policies such as the EC-Japan car arrangement, the common market organization for bananas, CoCom export controls, bilateral aviation agreements and public procurement. It will be of equal use to practising lawyers, EC officials, and scholars of EC law.

`Piet Eeckhout's book addresses, as few authors have done, the law relating to the community's trade with the rest of the world ... a relevant book for many practitioners and in-house counsel.' Diana Bentley, International Corporate Law `This book fills a major gap in literature on the internal market.' European Library `Eeckhout's contribution is very timely ... very readable ... Eeckhout's book is timely and relevant, deserving of a wide readership.' Times Higher Education Supplement `Eeckhout's contribution is very timely ... Eeckhout's style is very readable ... Eeckhout's book is timely and relevant, deserving of a wide readership.' Times Higher Education Supplement `a new title in the "Oxford European Community Law Series" ... The Series has succeeded in building up a good reputation by publishing books written by excellent authors such as J.A. Usher and D. Goyder. The book under review is a valuable (Belgian) addition to the Series ... The book does what is promised in the General Editor's Foreward, it puts issues of substance, across the whole range of the subject, squarely in the foreground. This makes the book interesting for practitioners and academics' Common Market Law Review `There is plenty of extremely useful material here ... the treatment is comprehensive, thorough and very clear.' Legal Studies `This work is a thorough academic survey of sensitive aspects of the Community's internal market programme and how they affect trade between the Community and its outside trading partners. Professor Eeckhout has undertaken a comprehensive summary and synthesis of the literature in the area and offers his own interpretations ... the author's scholarship ... points the reader to a myriad of sources and enables one to access the main currents of thought in some very difficult areas.' European Competition Law Review `Professor Eeckhout's monograph is ... particularly timely. It represents the first comprehensive analysis of the Community laws and policies which bear on international trade ... The importance of the subject of this monograph, the excellence of its analysis and the absence of equivalent works compels a close reading of Eeckhout.' International Trade Law and Regulation `Particularly timely. It represents the first comprehensive analysis of the Community laws and policies which bear on international trade ... The importance of the subject of this monograph, the excellence of its analysis and the absence of equivalent works compels a close reading of Eeckhout ... valuable work.' International Trade Law and Regulation `One must hope that Eeckhout's conclusions and well-founded suggestions will not be ignored. Eeckhout's work as a whole is a most successful attempt to paint a critical picture of the administrative and legal aspects of the external trade of the European Union. The work is equally important for theory and for practice.' Journal of International Banking Law
