As conflict and cooperation among states turn to an ever greater extent to economic issues, this fully updated and expanded second edition presents a comprehensive exploration of the legal foundations of the international economy. In it, Professor Andrews Lowenfeld examines the current status of the law, and explores the origins, political tensions and development of outcomes that are often difficult to comprehend.

The book covers all the major elements of economic law in the international arena including the World Trade Organization and its antecedents; dumping, subsidies, and other devices that alter the market; the International Monetary System, including the collapse of the Bretton Woods system; the debt of developing countries; the law of foreign direct investment, including changing perceptions of the rights of host states and multinational enterprises; and economic sanctions. The book also contains chapters on competition law, environmental law, and new chapters on intellectual property and the various forms of arbitration; demonstrating how these subjects fit into the framework of international economic law.

Professor Lowenfeld brings to his task a lifetime of practice and teaching experience to produce a book that will be of use to international lawyers and non-specialists alike.

About the Author:


Andreas Lowenfeld is the Herbert and Rose Rubin Professor of International Law at New York University.

Review:


"This is an enormously worthwhile book to read. Even if one does not wholeheartedly subscribe to the conclusions, the book starts one on a journey of consideration of these increasingly important and overlooked issues. All those who have a deep interest in public and private international law should undergo that journey."
--The Cambridge Law Journal


"There are academic books which become classics in their field shortly after publication. The two books to be reviewed here are such examples. They are already frequently cited and widely held to be authoritative."
--European Journal of International Law (reviewed together with Matsushita: The World Trade Organization)


"As a treatise the volume succeeds splendidly...a reference book for intellectual historians, for trade practitioners, and for scholars."
-American Journal of International Law


Reviews from previous edition:

"Andreas Lowenfeld has written the book many were hoping he would write. One must commend the author on [his] language and style. Lowenfeld has written a very important and delightful book."
--The Swiss Review of International Economic Relations
