The most ambitious round of multilateral trade negotiations since the formation of the GATT was formally launched in Punta del Este, Uruguay in 1986. With more than 100 nations participating in the ""Uruguay Round"" negotiations, complex economic problems and difficult political realities made reaching international accord on major trading issues a long and arduous process.;These volumes present a history of these negotiations, portraying how participating nations reached their positions on the proposed major changes in trade in agriculture and textiles, adoption of rules for trade in services, review of existing trade regulations, increased protection of intellectual property rights and the liberalization of the market for many important products.;These volumes contain information which should be useful for all involved in international trade. Legal practitioners, business executives, academics and government officials seeking to understand the position of the important players and grasp the implications of the final agreement should find this factually-objective and politically-neutral account of the negotiations a useful resource.;The volumes are also published separately, as are individual chapters, allowing for the purchase of only that information in which a customer has a specific interest.
