Summary "This book presents a history and analysis of the GATT legal system as it stands today at the beginning of the 1990s. Although the origins of GATT law go back to the GATT/ITO negotiations of 1946-1948 and beyond, the current legal system is largely the product of a reconstruction that took place from 1970 onwards. The book focuses on the evolution of GATT law during this modern period. It concentrates on the development of GATT's procedure for adjudicating legal disputes between member countries, known in GATT parlance as the "dispute settlement procedure". -- from the Preface, p. vii
