Rudawsky provides a fair introduction to the organization of markets and the determinants of international trade in minerals and other commodities. The beginning student who has had no formal training in economics would find it very instructive, at the same time developing a quick appreciation for country-company relations as mineral rights pass from the former to the latter. The excellent case study of a leteritic Ni deposit, which forms the last part of the book, is one of its strengths.
