Outstanding Academic Title

which contains a chapter on "World Trade" I wrote, has
been selected "Outstanding Academic Title" for 2002 by
"AIDS" to "World trade," the 30 contributions in this
encyclopedic analysis of the world's major challenges
are written by specialists, many connected with
universities or research institutions. Contributors to
the ecology sections are listed simply as "freelance

historical background and development, current research,
policies and programs, regional summaries, and case
studies. Each is accompanied by tables,
maps, and statistics, and each ends with biographical
sketches, a directory of organizations, sources for
further research, and excerpts from official documents.
