About this book

In this comprehensive new reference work, Kevin Gallagher has compiled a fresh and broad ranging collection of expert voices commenting on the interdisciplinary field of trade and the environment. The editor's well worked introduction synthesizes the emerging themes of the collection, which is divided into three sections: trade and environmental quality; trade and environmental politics, and trade and environmental policy. In addition to in-depth overviews of the field, the volume includes case studies on East Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe, and the United States. The volume will serve as a guide for scholars new to the field as well as students, and policy makers needing a quick reference to the research on the interface between trade and the environment.
