Summary: It is a pleasure and an honor to write this preface to the new issuance of Jacob Viner's classic work, edited by paul Oslington. As the Jacob Viner professor of international economics, I am an avid collector for all of Viner's writings. My copy of the customs union issue is well worn, so this new printing will find a welcome home on my bookshelf. For those who are not collectors like me, the availability of this new issuance will be even more Valuable. The questions that viner addresses have only grown in importance since the time of the book's writing, and some of his isdights are no less keen and relevant today than they werein their day. It is fascinating to read of trade creation and trade diversion from their original source and to discover that Viner did and did not actually say in the book after so much ink has been spilled on the subject. Muxch as with other reprinted classics, it will immediately be clear that the author's treatment of his subject is much richer than the catchphrase terms that have become associated with it.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Jacob Viner's The Customs Union Issue was originally published in 1950 by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. It set the framework for the contemporary debate over the benefits or otherwise of preferential trading agreements such as the European Union, NAFTA, and APEC. Viner developed the concepts of trade creation and diversion in this work as he pioneered the analysis of the global politics of trade agreements. This revival of Viner's classic work includes an introduction that places this book in the context of his own intellectual development and the economic and political situation of the post-WWII world. The introduction also traces the reception of Viner's work and discusses its continuing relevance for international economists, political scientists, and historians.

Author notes provided by Syndetics


Jacob Viner (1892-1970) was one of the great economists of the twentieth century who shaped the field of international economics. After a PhD thesis under Frank Taussig at Harvard University, he moved to University of Chicago where he built its reputation in economics with Frank Knight and others. He was then recruited by Princeton University to build what is now the leading international economics research group in the world. There, Viner also contributed as a policy advisor, mentor, and correspondent to leading economists on both sides of the Atlantic and led the late twentieth century intellectual transformation of the history of economics.

Paul Oslington is an international trade economist and historian of economics who is an expert on the work of Jacob Viner. He received his degree in economics from the University of Sydney, and his work has been published in leading journals of economics and the history of economics. He is currently Professor of Economics at Australian Catholic University and has held visiting appointments at University of Oxford, University of British Columbia, and Princeton University.
