In this first book to systematically compare how each of the world's major international trade organizations have handled environmental issues, leading specialists provide a balanced analysis of the development of trade and the environment rules in the World Trade Organization, the European Union, the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Free Trade Area of the Americas, the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, the International Organization for Standardization, and other key organizations. Deftly combining policy and theory, the authors offer a range of heuristics and normative orientations in an effort to understand one of the globe's most contentious and timely dilemmas.

A real contribution to a field that, as the Battle in Seattle showed, will only grow in importance. [The editor] has assembled the key people in the subject... This could well become the standard reference in the field of trade and environment. -- Jim Salzman, American University Richard Steinberg and his collaborators present an analysis that is well argued and likely to provoke a lively discussion. International Studies Review Each of the essays [in this book] provides comprehensive and thoughtful analysis of the treatment of environmental issues in its subject trade agreement and its environmental law coverage or lack thereof. This book is highly recommended for anyone with a serious interest in either side of the trade-environment equation. World Trade Review For all the fashionability of interdisciplinary scholarship, neither international law nor international relations pays nearly enough attention to the comparative study of institutions. The Greening of Trade Law makes an important and lasting contribution to both disciplines. -- Anne-Marie Slaughter, dean of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University
