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. Vinerdeveloped 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 life's work and the post-WWI economic and political situation. The introduction also traces the reception of Viner's work and discusses its continuing relevance for international economists,political scientists, and historians.
