In recent decades, the international economy has witnessed profound changes. International Trade and the New Global Economy includes key papers on the leading research discussing the links between these changes and international trade. Written by an outstanding set of distinguished economists and political scientists, the seminal papers in this volume address the proliferation of preferential trade agreements, the effects of the Great Recession on trade, and mass attitudes about trade and globalization.

With an original introduction by the editor, this volume is an excellent source of reference for social scientists and graduate students interested in international economic affairs.
‘In this volume, Edward D. Mansfield collects some of the key pieces of research on three of the most important and hotly debated topics of our time in the international political economy of trade: trade agreements, individual trade policy preferences, and the great recession. The papers within this volume are essential reading for those wishing to understand the modern dynamics of the international trading system.’
– Jon Pevehouse, University of Wisconsin-Madison, US

‘A sterling collection of the most important research on the contemporary politics of international trade. Mansfield has astutely gathered work from the research frontier.’
– David A. Lake, University of California, San Diego, US

‘Ed Mansfield is a leading scholar of international political economy and here he has brought together an impressive collection of articles from the top journals in the field. The volume includes classics that are already mandatory reading for anyone studying international political economy, and it also introduces the latest trends in research with exciting new work in survey analysis. Readers will gain critical insights into the economic and political forces that shape free trade agreements and the formation of public opinion towards trade. A final section reflects on the Great Recession from the perspective of economics and international relations.’
