‘Nothing comes closer to “everything you wanted to know about antidumping” than this volume. This is a great collection of well-known, thought-provoking papers that have influenced our thinking about antidumping, and antidumping practice alike. Academics and practitioners now have a magnificent one-stop shop to be inspired from.’
