It is the leading primer in WTO law.' Isabelle Van Damme, Referendaire in the chambers of Advocate General Sharpston at the Court of Justice of the European Union, Luxembourg, and Visiting Lecturer, Universite Catholique de Louvain, Belgium

It is lucidly written and identifies issues that would draw the attention of both beginners and established international trade lawyers. It is without doubt a recommended reading for both students and established trade lawyers.' Yenkong Ngangjoh-Hodu, University of Manchester
'Van den Bossche and Prevost provide a clear and concise introduction to WTO law. Their book provides an overview of the key agreements, rules and issues, in a form that is significantly less intimidating than existing volumes.
