Tim Josling and Stefan Tangermann's Transatlantic Food and Agricultural Trade Policy traces the past fifty years of transatlantic trade relations in the area of food and agricultural policy, from early skirmishes over farm policies to on-going conflicts over biotech foods and hormone use in animal rearing. The authors take an analytical approach to the causes of transatlantic conflict and the extent to which these trade tensions in agricultural markets have reflected wide differences in policy approaches and levels of support. They explore the role played by international rules, in the GATT, and subsequently the WTO, in disciplining farm price support policies to allow for more open markets. The book also points to possible ways to end five decades of transatlantic trade tensions in the area of food and farm products. Scholars, practitioners and policymakers will find this timely book an invaluable and comprehensive guide to the causes of, and solutions to, the persistent EU-US trade conflicts in agricultural and food policy.

'Overall, the book is fascinating reading. The wealth of knowledge of the authors and their thoughtful scholarship are demonstrated through a clear and relatively impartial analysis of the history of the trading relationship between two of the world's foremost economic and political powers and the complex issues that have characterized that history. This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how EU-US agricultural trade relations have evolved and the challenges that both currently face in trying to conclude a wide-ranging bilateral agreement on trade and investment.' -- David Blandford, American Journal of Agricultural Economics 'This is an invaluable piece of work that, to my knowledge, is not replicated anywhere, even in piecemeal fashion. It should be read by everyone having a stake in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations. It fills an historical vacuum in US-EU agricultural trade relationships that has existed for decades. This book provides the context of the past half century, and it will be invaluable for another half century.'
