`Undertaking a Research Handbook in International Economic Law is an enormous challenge, and I believe the scholars mobilized for this project have fully met that challenge. The selection of topics is comprehensive, the footnotes and bibliographies are careful and copious, and the writing is lucid, understandable by beginners as well as experts. As I go about revising my own treatise on international economic law, the Handbook will be my constant guide.'
- Andreas F. Lowenfeld, New York University School of Law
`Despite its rather modest title, the book Research Handbook in International Economic Law edited by Andrew T. Guzman and Alan O. Sykes is a remarkable collection which certainly will be welcomed as an important reference and analytical commentary for even those most knowledgeable about IEL. The editors have marshaled authors and co-authors for fourteen different chapters, covering virtually all the crucial subjects under international economic law. These authors are clearly well chosen for their respective expertise which is manifested in each chapter by describing and analyzing specific subject material with a merged perspective of law, economics and political science. However, this is also indeed a "handbook" in providing in accessible form and limited text length a detailed overview of subjects ranging from the essentials of international economics, to roadmaps for understanding the WTO, dispute settlement, investment, finance, competition, telecommunications and many more. The editors' ambition is truly impressive, and has been admirably realized.'
- John H. Jackson, Georgetown University Law Center
`This book is an absolute gem. It takes the term international economic law seriously. Unlike any other book that I know of, this Handbook transcends the traditional, narrow focus on public trade law to include private commercial law, investment, competition, tax, IP, finance and international environmental law. In 14 comprehensive chapters, the law, policy and economics of 14 different issue areas are covered. Written by absolute leaders in their field, the Handbook offers an entry point for newcomers in each of those subject matters, yet does so at a level of sophistication, insight and comprehensiveness that should equally delight and enrich specialists.'

This major new work consists of carefully commissioned original and incisive contributions from leading scholars in the field of international economic law. Covering a full range of topics, the Handbook provides an accessible treatment of the law in each area, as well as a thoughtful synthesis and discussion of related public policy issues from a broadly social science perspective.
The book includes extensive coverage of international trade issues, which are generally considered to be the core of international economic law, and focuses on such topics as barriers to trade, dispute settlement, trade and services, regionalism and remedies. It also goes significantly beyond these to look at related areas of the discipline; international investment, including discussion of regulatory issues and private rights of action; intellectual property issues relating to trade; commercial law; legal and economic aspects of international tax and international finance; the closely related areas of trade and international competition policy; international environmental law; and international telecommunications.
Providing in many cases a unique interdisciplinary blend of analysis, the Handbook offers a cutting edge approach to international economic law, and an authoritative source of reference for scholars, graduate students and policymakers alike.
