About this book

This is the first book to tell the story of the diplomacy that has made the international trading system what it is today. It reveals how three major transformations over the past two centuries have shaped the way goods, services, capital and labour cross borders, as buyers and sellers meet in the global marketplace.

Reviews

"Geoff Pigman, in great detail and with appropriate historical reference, makes a strong case for more aggressive promotion of trade diplomacy so as to bring some degree of order to the chaotic and uneven power of world trade." - William H. Draper III, Draper Richards L.P and Draper International, former Chairman of the Export-Import Bank of the United States, USA

"This book is great reading for everyone interested in the history of trade policy, the changing role of diplomacy and the great transformations shaping global commerce." - Manfred Elsig, University of Bern, Switzerland
