Editorial Reviews

Review

"In recent years consumers have been buffeted by one worry after another. Is the pet food they buy safe for their animals? Are the toys they purchase safe for their children? As public debates over product risk have become more important, we've discovered a surprising fact: the safety of imported goods isn't just a matter of writing rules. Import Safety is a must-read for anyone trying to understand how governments—and consumers—can negotiate the globalized world."—Donald F. Kettl, Dean of the School of Public Policy, University of Maryland



"Import Safety provides a timely and comprehensive overview of the challenges faced by both governments and domestic and foreign firms in protecting consumers from unsafe imported goods. It not only describes and documents the magnitude of this challenge but also offers a number of creative legal and administrative solutions to address it."—David Vogel, Solomon P. Lee Chair in Business Ethics, University of California, Berkeley



"An important book. I am impressed by the way it tackles the food safety problems created by globalization and explains why our current regulatory systems are failing to protect the public. Best, it offers highly innovative ways to solve food safety problems and should be welcomed by policy makers the world over. Anyone who cares about the safety of food and other imports needs to read this book."—Marion Nestle, Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, New York University
