Book Description

The legal foundations of the international economy—which underpin both the actions of sovereign states, as well as the conduct of individuals and business entities engaged in cross-border transactions—are now more than ever a crucial site for scholarly exploration.

Indeed, with the growing impact of globalization, research in and around the subject flourishes as never before. This new four-volume collection from Routledge meets the need for an authoritative reference work to map a rapidly growing and ever more complex corpus of literature. Edited by a leading scholar, International Economic Law gathers foundational and canonical work, together with more contemporary and cutting-edge scholarship. The collection boldly identifies and elucidates International Economic Law’s critical concepts to make sense of the subdiscipline’s evolution and to garner insights into its likely development.

With a full index, together with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, International Economic Law is an essential work of reference. For the novice or advanced student, the collection will be particularly useful as an essential database allowing scattered and often fugitive material to be easily located. And, for the more advanced scholar, as well as practitioners and policy-makers, it will be welcomed as a crucial tool permitting rapid access to less familiar—and sometimes overlooked—texts. For all users, International Economic Law will be valued as a vital one-stop research and pedagogic resource.
