Reviews

"This is, without a doubt, the most comprehensive discussion of trade policy since Taussig's immensely influential Tariff History of the United States. Irwin describes the profound evolution of American trade policy from colonial times to the present, bringing up to date with the most recent empirical research and the emergence of a broader trade policy. In its breadth and depth, Clashing over Commerce represents a major contribution."--Jeremy Atack, Vanderbilt University
"Clashing over Commerce is a magisterial book. Irwin takes readers through the long story of American trade policy with keen insight and a sense for historical significance."--I. M. Destler, University of Maryland
"Other histories have been written about US trade policy, but Irwin's is the most comprehensive and useful for guiding our current decision making on trade. . . . Irwin combines scholarly analysis with a historian's eye for trends and colorful details. This book is readable and illuminating, for the trade expert and for all Americans wanting a deeper understanding of America's evolving role in the global economy."
--National Review
"Clashing over Commerce is a very impressive book. Besides a detailed history of trade policy, it provides a general picture of American political and economic history."--Regulation
"Irwin's magnum opus . . . is already a classic. Given the prominent role trade is playing in politics right now, it is also very timely. At almost seven hundred pages, Clashing over Commerce looks intimidating. But once you start reading, it isn't. Irwin tells a coherent story that spans generations, showcasing the prominent personalities in the great trade debate, their larger philosophical and economic arguments, and the legislation and policies they fought over. It hits on all levels."-- (01/02/2019)
