Product Description


"[A] fascinating exploration of how governments, in the exercise of their public functions, work with and are influenced by private sector actors... Shaffer's DEFENDING INTERESTS is a unique and superb work of scholarship. It contains a wealth of information based on original research about how the United States and the EC prosecute cases in the WTO dispute settlement system." --William J. Davey, University of Illinios College of Law, The American Journal of International Law, 1/1/2005 "This public-private hybrid is the wave of the future not only for international economic law, but also for international criminal law and soon for international environmental law. Defending Interests is on the cutting edge of international law research --exploring and analyzing the costs, benefits, contradictions, and tensions in this new form of governance." --Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dean, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs "This book is an outstanding piece of research... The picture of how U.S. business interests operate within Washington should be required reading for any scholar who wants to write about U.S. behavior with regard to international trade law." --Robert E. Hudec, Research Professor of International Law, Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University "This extremely well-researched account of public-private decisionmaking processes in the United States and the European Union provides thoughtful judgment of their significance and impact on transatlantic relations and the WTO system. I enjoyed it tremendously." --Hugo Paemen, former EU Ambassador to the United States, Senior Adviser for Hogan and Hartson L.L.P.

It is a book I needed, I ordered, and I paid for, but unfortunatelly it had been a library book before (it still has a library label, and the first page is tore out) - that is a pitty!!!!

so watch out for the betterworldbooks - as they might sell books which are simply stolen from any library!

good book 6 Sept. 2011
By book buyer - Published on
Format: Paperback
good book and plastic packaged. Arrive in time with free shiping with an extra purchase. This softcover book is much less expensive than the hard cover, and is only found in Amazon's own book store.
