This short text shows how little a careful analysis can do to distinguish the effect of the formation of foreign blocs from other factors shaping U.S. trade, investment and licensing. Though the European Community is by far the most important bloc, much of the value of this book is in the descriptive and statistical detail about those in the rest of the world.
