'This excellent collection of papers that address concrete trade and health issues in specific countries within a conceptual framework that pretty much makes sense of it all...Trading Women's Health and Rights? sets out its premises at the outset and follows through with illuminating case studies, careful analysis, and a lot of information about trade agreements and their health consequences that are unlikely to be known to population specialists. To the editors and authors of what must have seemed at the outset a most formidable task, Salud!' Ruth Dixon-Mueller, Book reviews
