After the recent collapse of the Doha Development Round of the World Trade Organization talks, agricultural subsidies and market liberalization are high on the political agenda. This exciting four-volume reset edition charts the evolution of free trade from the publication of Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations in 1776, to the present day. Carefully-selected historical documents address the thorny relationship between trade and politics, the appropriate role of international regulation, domestic concerns about foreign competition, and multilateral trade agreements. Rare and difficult-to-access documents from national governments, economic interest groups, the media and individuals are sourced from archives in the US and the UK. Much of the material included has not been published before. Battles over Free Trade will be crucial for those interested in the history of international trade, economic and political historians, as well as business professionals with an historical interest.
