Max Corden has during the course of a long and distinguished career become established as one of the world's leading authorities on international trade theory. This selection of some of his most important articles and papers - many of which are considered classics - demonstrates his distinctive style, favouring words and diagrams over mathematics and aiming always for clear and simple exposition.

Part I consists of three surveys: the first covers the period from 1949 to 1964, the second reviews empirical work on protection and the third provides a long review of the normative theory of international trade. Part II deals with the theory of trade policy and includes a critical essay on strategic trade policy, as well as articles on effective protection, foreign investment and protection, and customs union theory. Other topics covered include trade and growth, balance-of-payments theory, booming sector and Dutch disease economics, and international macroeconomic policy interaction and transmission. In an introduction Max Corden gives a fascinating account of how he came to write these papers.

The book will be an essential reference companion for both students and researchers concerned with international trade theory.
