After slogging through systematic expositions of the nature of services, their categories, definitions and increased importance in the world economy, the reader comes to the heart of this good book: examinations of the problems of dealing with barriers to trade in services through international agreement. As Mr. Feketekuty was a pioneer in handling these matters in the U.S. government, his analysis is authoritative and covers subjects hardly dealt with elsewhere. He considers alternatives for future action as well as current issues in very clear prose and considerable detail. The book is indispensable for any serious study of the subject.
