Food Fights: International Regimes and the Politics of Agricultural Trade Disputes

First published in 1993, this title explores the underlying ideologies and decision-making procedures that codify the rules of the post-World War II liberal, now defunct Soviet socialist, mercantilist and South preferential trade regimes. Food Fights presents a rich case study and rigorous data analysis of organized agricultural trade that uncovers similarities between these diverse economic systems and identifies the principle trends governing the new global economy.
