Reviews

'This important book addresses a question of utmost relevance for academics and policy-makers alike: Why is it that multilateral trade negotiations are so protracted even though trade liberalization benefits everybody in the end? Eugénia da Conceição-Heldt argues that domestic political institutions and the lack of time pressures combine to produce inefficient results. A must-read for anybody interested in trade negotiations!' Thomas Risse, Free University Berlin, Germany
