The past few decades have witnessed a growth in the importance of services in the economy, yet until the 1980s, scholarly literature on the expanding role of trade in services in the world economy remained scarce. This timely two-volume collection, edited by a leading analyst in the field, brings together seminal works on the WTO and trade in services published in the last twenty-five years. Areas covered in this important set include the determinants and patterns of trade in services, services in regional integration agreements and the GATS. This book will be of immense value to scholars and practitioners interested in this evolving and increasingly relevant field of study.

    An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

    A growth of services in the economy has taken place in the last few years although there was little by way of scholarly literature to explain the expanding role of trade in services in the global economy.

    Edward Elgar Publications have produced the excellent two volume collection under the editorship of Bernard Hoekman to redress the balance. A leading analyst in the field, Hoekman has collated the seminal works on the WTO and trade in services which have been published over the past decades.

    The two volumes cover a range of materials including the determinants and patterns of trade in services; services in regional integration agreements and the GATS.

    “The WTO and Trade in Services” offers great value to academics, policymakers and practitioners in this increasingly important area of study as the services-intensity of global economies continues to expand and we are very grateful to Elgar for this most useful and apposite compilation.
