Back cover copy

Trade in goods has been and still is the core of the worldwide trading system. The 1947 GATT is not only the origin of today's World Trade Organization, it also is - now as the GATT 1994 - the core agreement regulating trade in goods and the subject of numerous WTO disputes as well as a still growing volume of scholarly work. The volume will offer the first article-by-article commentary of the whole Agreement, featuring contributions by leading practitioners and scholars in the field. In addition, the volume covers the Agreement on Rules of Origin, the Agreement on Preshipment Inspection, the Agreement on the Implementation of Art. VII of the GATT 1994 and the Understandings related to the GATT 1994. As the GATT cannot be understood without its historic background, the volume is completed by a section on the history of GATT. The volume is an indispensable reference work for the entire WTO community - governments, practitioners, scholars and trade professionals alike.
