Description

A two-tier approach to learning makes this the most flexible book available: core theory within chapters is complemented by technical notes at the end of relevant chapters, allowing students to take their learning further.

  • The only book to offer students a two-tier approach, introducing the core theories whilst also providing technical notes at the end of relevant chapters to allow students to deepen their understanding.
  • The only book to move away from the traditional US-centric perspective to offer a more balanced overview of international trade
  • Extensively illustrated with over 240 graphs, charts, and tables to transform abstract theories into tangible examples.
