Critical Acclaim
‘The book is well-referenced and could be useful to students of microeconomics and as a reference text.’
– Aslib Book Guide

‘These two volumes cannot be recommended more highly for purchase by libraries in universities with specialist courses in international economies, and for use by students. The editor deserves great credit for having delineated such an impressive canon for the study of international trade. It will be invaluable for many years.’
– P. Sinclair, The Economic Journal
