Dictionary of International Trade Law was the first of its kind book, and remains the indispensable reference that students, scholars, and practitioners around the world frequently consult. This Dictionary defines and explains in detail hundreds of terms — common and uncommon ones — used in the field, from the 'ACU' and 'CMAA' to 'TIFA' and the 'WCO.'

In sum, the 1,500-page Dictionary is the user-friendly tool for students, scholars, and practitioners to navigate through and critically analyze the complex jargon and concepts in trade.
