The Commerce of Nations
The Commerce of Nations
By J. B. Condliffe
Norton, 1950, 884 pp

A professor of economics at the University of California writes an extensive and useful history of the interplay between world trade, public commercial policy, and the development of economic theory. Over one-third of the volume is devoted to contemporary problems for which, however, no very clear solution emerges beyond the imperative need "to create a more effective means of international economic coöperation than now exists."
