This work examines the growing interaction between private enterprises and public officials to challenge foreign trade barriers. Building on more than a hundred interviews with former and current trade officials and private attorneys in the United States and Europe, Gregory Shaffer calls attention to the ways in which well-organized private parties are using the World Trade Organization's legal system to advance their own commercial ambitions, and how public officials increasingly are dependent on their assistance.;Shaffer assesses the historical, political, legal, economic and cultural factors that have affected the formation of these ad hoc public-private partnerships, as well as trends in the European Union toward US-style practice. He considers the implications of these public-private trade litigation networks for the effectiveness and equity of the WTO system and the stability of US-EU relations.
