International Trade and the Tokyo Round Negotiation
By Gilbert R. Winham
Princeton University Press, 1987, pp.
This impressive book adds substantially to the history of the troubled 1970s by giving us a very full account of the major multilateral trade negotiations that occupied much of the decade. In addition to analyzing these events in the detail that is necessary to do a proper job, Professor Winham of Dalhousie University devotes a good deal of space to the historical and economic setting. He makes effective use of his special skills as a student of the negotiating process (including the domestic processes in the major countries). This will be the standard work on the subject at least until memoirs are written by arm twisters and twistees-and perhaps even then.
