E. Elgar, Jan 1, 2005 - Business & Economics - 655 pages
'This is an absolutely first rate collection. The editors have done a very nice job of identifying several research topics in which major advances have been made in the last decade and accurately identified the major contributions in those areas. If you want to know where the frontier of trade theory is, just look at this volume. In addition, Falvey and Kreickemeier have provided an introduction which summarizes the included papers and puts them in context.'
