During the past thirty years, international trade agreements have focused increasingly on areas of provincial jurisdiction. InThe Provinces and Canadian Foreign Trade Policy, Kukucha argues that Canadian provinces have maintained a level of autonomy in response to these developments, sometimes even influencing Canada's global trade relations and the evolution of international norms and standards. The first comprehensive review of provincial foreign trade policy in Canada, the book highlights the convergence of debates related to federalism, Canadian foreign policy, and the global political economy as they are played out in the negotiation and implementation of international trade agreements. It will be of interest to students and practitioners of political science, public policy, and economics.



Book News
Kukucha (political science, U. of Lethbridge, Canada) analyzes the foreign trade policies of the Canadian provinces and the impact on the provinces on Canada's increasing involvement in international trade regimes such as the World Trade Organization and the North American Free Trade Agreement. He first focuses on the issue of provincial autonomy, finding little change in patterns of trade and the continuation of decentralizing trends in federal-provincial economic relations. He then addresses the provincial policy process and its capacity to directly affect outcomes in national foreign trade relations and international norms and standards, examining how trade policy choices are shaped by institutional, sectoral, societal, and ideational factors. Finally, he examines emerging cross-border cooperative regimes and NAFTA "Side Deals" on labor and the environment, finding significant provincial success in agenda-setting but little evidence of deeper continental integration.
