I feel as if the author either wrote this book in one really long, rushed sitting, or he wrote it over the course of many, many years in a fragmented process. I am a political science and economics major and I love what I'm studying, but while this book combines both of those with the historical process of American trade policy, I found myself grudgingly trying to complete this book. It's far more convoluted than it needs to be and poorly organized, with obscure references and random jumps in explanation. There has to be a better way to outline and discuss American trade policy.

I found this volume useful and informative. It deals primarily with how Congress and the president shape American trade relations. It also considers the role of other domestic factors, such as interest groups. Destler explains various general approaches to the study of how American policy-makers arrive at a particualr type of trade policy. The main target audience is graduate and undergraduate students in public policy, American politics, and international political economy,

I would give this 0 stars if I could. Remember the mono-tone teacher that drones on and on in Ferris Bueller's Day Off? I think he may be the author of this book because that is how stunningly boring it is.

I hate this book. I'm supposed to read it for my International Economics class. If you suffer from insomnia, look no further--this book will put you to sleep in minutes.
