Further information

‘. . . a comprehensive collection of 48 articles on trade in services spanning the period from 1985 to 2009, is a timely addition to the existing literature on the subject. . . This book is truly multidisciplinary in its approach. Its articles include contributions from leading academics, legal practitioners, national policymakers, and staff of the European Commission, WTO, and the World Bank. . . The introduction presents a splendid overview of the articles featured in the book. He not only succinctly summarises the main findings of each of the articles but also very aptly introduces the reader to the important relevant works on the topics covered in these articles. . . Reviewing a book consisting of so many articles by various authors in less than a thousand words is by no means an easy task and it entails the unfortunate omission of even merely mentioning brilliant individual articles which warrant discussion. This is in a way testament of the complexity of the task that the editor might have faced in selecting and commenting on articles covering a period of almost a quarter of a century. He must be highly commended for performing those tasks very successfully as the articles, as diverse as they are, seem to fit together. . . Because of the coverage of very well written articles by lawyers, economists, scholars of international relations, public policy, and political science, the book would be significant for scholars, practitioners, and policymakers. . . the book would be an invaluable tool for undertaking any comprehensive research on the global trade in services. In view of its all-embracing scope, this book may well be an essential beginning point for researchers on trade in services for a considerable period of time.’
– Mohammad Rizwanul Islam, Asian Journal of International Law

‘The availability of this vast collection of economics literature on services published since the mid-1980s is likely to prove useful not only to the negotiators but to the hundreds of economists, government and non-government public policy officials, lawyers and students who seek a better understanding of the complex issues and challenges raised by services trade and the ISA negotiations. . . a significant volume of important literature from the 25-year period 1984–2009. . . This collection should thus be useful for any professional interested in services trade. . .’
– David A. Gantz, International Trade Law and Regulation

‘The WTO and Trade in Services offers great value to academics, policymakers and practitioners in this increasingly important area of study as the services-intensity of global economies continues to expand and we are very grateful to Elgar for this most useful and apposite compilation.’
– Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, The Barrister Magazine

The past few decades have witnessed a growth in the importance of services in the economy, yet until the 1980s, scholarly literature on the expanding role of trade in services in the world economy remained scarce. This timely two-volume collection, edited by a leading analyst in the field, brings together seminal works on the WTO and trade in services published in the last twenty-five years. Areas covered in this important set include the determinants and patterns of trade in services, services in regional integration agreements and the GATS. This book will be of immense value to scholars and practitioners interested in this evolving and increasingly relevant field of study.
