In the appendices, graduate students and researchers will find self-contained treatments in mathematical terms.

International Trade Theory and Policy is a masterful exposition of the core ideas of international trade. The book updates the classic monograph of Professor Gandolfo and is now the single most comprehensive and up-to-date book in the field. I highly recommend it for advanced undergraduates, PhD students, and professional economists. Even specialists in international trade will find new insights. Professor Donald R.
