International trade negotiations, in GATT and elsewhere, could do much to improve world agriculture, but one cannot feel very sure that will happen. The possibilities and the limits are well laid out in this clear and authoritative book. Using the best work in agricultural economics and a realistic political analysis, the author shows how present costs and distortions have to be dealt with by national policies, not least those of the United States.
