Faundez & Tan: International Economic Law, Globalization and Developing Countries

Julio Faundez (Univ. of Warwick) & Celine Tan (Univ. of Birmingham) have published International Economic Law, Globalization and Developing Countries (Edward Elgar Publishing 2010). The table of contents is here. Here's the abstract:
The onset of the current process of globalization has brought about momentous changes to the rules and processes of international law. This comprehensive book examines a number of these changes, including the radical expansion of international economic law, the increase in the power of international economic organizations, and the new informal approaches to law-making. The greater reliance on judicial and arbitral mechanisms, and the proliferation of international human rights instruments, many of which have a direct bearing on international economic relations, are also discussed. The contributors to this book are all prominent experts in the fields of international law and international political economy, drawn from both developing and developed countries.
