Description

Handbook of International Economics, Fifth Edition provides a definitive reference and teaching supplement for researchers and advanced graduate students. It includes self-contained surveys of the current state of a branch of economics in the form of chapters prepared by leading specialists. These surveys summarize not only received results but also newer developments from journal articles and discussion papers. Some original material is included, but the handbook's main goal is to provide comprehensive and accessible surveys. While this is a useful reference for professional collections, it's also a great resource for supplementary readings for advanced courses for graduate students in economics.
