Outstanding Academic Title

War at Risk: A Global Issues Sourcebook, which contains a chapter on "World Trade" I wrote, has been selected "Outstanding Academic Title" for 2002 by Choice magazine.

"Arranged alphabetically, "AIDS" to "World trade," the 30 contributions in this encyclopedic analysis of the world's major challenges are written by specialists, many connected with universities or research institutions. Contributors to the ecology sections are listed simply as "freelance writer." Each topic is broadly explored, covering historical background and development, current research, policies and programs, regional summaries, and case studies. Each is accompanied by tables, maps, and statistics, and each ends with biographical sketches, a directory of organizations, sources for further research, and excerpts from official documents. Like all CQ's publications, this work is characterized by analytical excellence. Recommended for all reference collections. M. Strange University of Wisconsin--LaCrosse." Choice (December 1, 2002)
