It describes the trade negotiations known as the Uruguay Round which took place in the context of the GATT and which led to the establishment of the World Trade Organization at the end of 1994. The book contains a brief summary of the history of the negotiations and GATT rules in each case - drawing on the authors first-hand experience - but focuses more on the results of the negotiations themselves.
