A Charter for World Trade
A Charter for World Trade
By Clair Wilcox
Macmillan, 1949, 333 pp.

Dr. Wilcox, an economist and public servant of note, was the effective head of the American delegation to the conference that drew up the Havana Charter. He gives, within the bounds imposed by the nature of the subject, a lucid account of the historical background of the I.T.O., the long process of its formulation and the nature of the final agreement. The appendix contains the text of the Havana Charter.
