Paul Oslington is an international trade economist and historian of economics who is an expert on the work of Jacob Viner.

He is known widely for, inter aliaoriginating the concepts of Vinerian trade creation and diversion.

This timely new edition of his classic The Customs Union Issue will re-acquaint a new generation of trade students with not only the original discussion of these concepts but also the admirable rhetorical style of his generation of economists.
