  • A brilliant success.... This book, like its predecessor, will be taken for granted as shared background in future scholarly discussion of the issues it treats.

  • An excellent summary of the basic ideas on trade policy under conditions of imperfect competition. Not only does it provide a good guide to what has been happening in this area of research, but it also organizes the variety of models in such a way as to furnish the reader with rich insights.
