This is the first volume of three in a set designed to both survey the literature and present current ideas and concepts. In general, the Handbook is Eurocentric, given that thus far Europe is where international economic integration has been given the most attention; but other regions are not neglected. Editor Jovanovic is affiliated with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, Geneva, Switzerland, as well as the European Institute of the U. of Geneva. Twenty-two contributed chapters address general issues, and regional groups. More specifically, topics include multilateral versus regional trading arrangements, the economic case for reciprocal trade negotiations, limits to integration, technology and globalization, the Lisbon Treaty; the North American Free Trade Agreement; and issues of regional integration in East Asia, South America, the Middle East, and Africa.
