This book contains a selection of essays and articles by John H. Jackson previously published over four decades and now collected together into one volume for the first time. Each article has been selected for its continued timeliness and relevance to contemporary issues in international trade. Particular attention has been given to making available articles which have previously been less accessible. For the most part articles are republished in their original form but, where appropriate, the author has clearly marked some omissions and added updating material. In selecting and grouping these writings into six thematic parts, the author has written a short introduction to each part for this book. These range from the origin of the GATT through to the Uruguay round of trade negotiations and the WTO. An important compendium from a globally recognised scholar which must become an indispensable purchase for all concerned with international trade policy issues.

Industry Reviews

'In summary, the book is both testimony and testament. It is testimony in the sense of offering a series of roughly chronological insights into topics of evolving GATT and WTO law from the pen of a skilful writer immersed in the events as they took place. It is a testament to the experience and ability of the author, his prolific and continuing contribution to scholarship of international law, and his appreciation of the systematic issues involved in the evolution of the GATT and now the WTO. While its publication is therefore a celebration, this volume is also practical, and its intelligent and friendly style recommends it as a valuable acquisition for many libraries.' Caroline E. Foster, The Cambridge Law Journal 'John H. Jackson is one of the leading academic experts on the law and practice of the GATT/WTO. This book brings together in one place many of the author's essays and articles, representing a comprehensive sample of his vast output ... In all, this collection offers an excellent source of knowledge concerning some of the more technical problems raised by international economic regulation ... the collection represents an essential addition to the literature on international economic law, representing, as it does, the views of one of the most learned and experienced scholars in the field.' Modern Law Review '... this is a useful collection for the academic, government official, or practising lawyer seeking to learn more about the law and policy framework of the GATT/WTO trading system and the underlying institutional checks and balances in that system ... Jackson resorts to his belief in the need to manage interdependence and proposes that a number of techniques - harmonization, reciprocity and interface - could usefully be explored in order to achieve this.' Leiden Journal of International Law '... an important collection of essays for any international economic law library, as it provides an overarching view of the work of one of the true pioneers of international trade law.'
