As the ultimate arbiter in today's global trade regime, the dispute settlement system of the World Trade Organization (WTO) is a body whose workings should be known to business people and their counsel everywhere. Here is a book--reviewed for accuracy by the WTO but written independently--that provides an uncomplicated but thorough explanation of the system, its purpose, its rules, and the role it plays in the management of the international economy.

Peter Gallagher, a former trade negotiator and a specialist in the Uruguay Round agreements, answers such questions as the following:

  • What sort of disputes does the WTO deal with?
  • Can business or citizens use the WTO dispute system?
  • Is it possible to get a temporary injunction to stop some action?
  • How much does it cost a to bring a case?
  • How far can you keep on appealing a decision?

    As a handy guide to "bringing a case" before the WTO, or responding to a case already in progress, this easy-to-use book is the ideal starting point for lawyers, business people, or government officials confronted with a disputable trade issue. It is sure to find a place in the working library of people everywhere concerned with international trade.
