'Goes a long way towards redressing the imbalance in the debate on the desirability of free trade. Graham Dunkley's incisive analysis shows that resistance may be preferable to adaptation.' Business SA 'Provides an interesting insight into the variety of "special interests" which have helped to promote an opening of the global economy, while fuelling regionalism and selective protectionism.'
