This title was first published in 2002: The Commodity Protocols of the EU have become a major focus of conflict with the USA. This illuminating volume reviews the significance of the banana, rum and sugar Protocols for the Commonwealth Caribbean, while placing them in the context of the Lomé and Cotonou Agreements. In an era of transition in the international trading environment, it provides an interesting case study of the implications for some of the smaller economic players in the world economy of these global changes. Timely and thought-provoking, this study will be of critical interest to students, academics and professionals in the field of development economics and European studies.


'…the book is timely and is a valuable contribution…The wealth of information and analysis provided would be useful…in looking to the future and providing approaches to the innovative solutions that will be required for the difficult adjustment issues ahead.' Development Policy Review
