Trade and the Environment is a penetrating analysis of the relation between trade and environmental protection policies in the European Community and the United States. It argues that the international tensions arising from policies designed to protect trade and the environment can be resolved by the free trade provisions of the EC Treaty and the US Constitution, and from the setting of common environmental standards for all parties. It discusses also the contributions of the judiciary and legislature toward the solution of these tensions.
