“Developing Countries and the Multilateral Trade Regime provides valuable insights to the debate surrounding free trade, multilateralism and the challenges facing developing countries under the trading current structure.
...a worthy addition to the critical literature on free trade and multilateralism. Scholars, researchers and policy makers, particularly those in developing countries, would find some important insights and lessons to be learnt from the issues highlighted in the book.” – Mohammed El Said,

“..a text that offers a coherent and thoughtful narrative about the ongoing challenge of developing countries within the WTO...
... a commendable contribution to the literature on development and the WTO.
What Alessandrini has done in this book is a commendable job of developing, explaining, and defending a historical narrative of multilateral trading system that tends to devalue and (at least partially) disenfranchise developing countries. It is well researched and well thought, and it usefully places its subject in historical perspective. The book also offers a useful point of departure for further scholarship along various lines.” – Gregory W. Bowman,
