It is this integration—the reduction in trade barriers between countries—that is explored in Beverly May Carl’s Economic Integration Among Developing Nations: Law and Policy. Professor Carl focuses on regional common market associations of developing nations, their benefits as well as their difficulties, and their utility as a means of reducing trade barriers and dependence on imports by member nations from industrialized nations. Integration thus can be a tool for development, as the Commerce Clause of the Federal Constitution was for the nascent United States of America and still is today.
