“This short and well-written book provides a fresh look at the making of trade policy, one that breaks away from easy determinisms (systemic, economic, institutional or ideological) but views politicians as 'entrepreneurs' constructing coalitions and institutions.”
—Canadian Journal of Political Science
“Lusztig examines various models of the decision-making process and argues that support for liberalizing trade is a second-order objective, adopted by political actors as a by-product of the first-order objective of effecting a favorable political realignment of domestic interests. . . . Lusztig's model of political entrepreneurship is valuable . . . [and] of interest to readers seeking a conceptual framework for policymaking in the area of international trade.”
—American Political Science Review
"A fresh and inventive argument. Its distinctiveness will allow [the book] to be seen and heard within a very crowded literature on the topic."
—G. John Ikenberry
