About this book


The book offers an authoritative overview of the topical issues surrounding intra-industry trade in Europe in the era of European economic integration. It brings together expert contributors from eight of the European Union member states. The theory of intra-industry trade is discussed and assessed through a comprehensive study of the patterns of trade in Europe and the individual member states over a thirty year period. This detailed empirical analysis allows conclusions to be drawn on issues including the impact of international trade on the domestic economy. The book arises from a major multinational programme co-ordinated from the University of Nottingham.
