Booklist Review

Edited by the Chief Economist of the U.S. Department of Commerce, this work compiles data on U.S. exports and imports and related topics from a variety of government agencies, including the U.S. Bureau of the Census, the International Trade Administration, and the Bureau of Economic Analysis of the Department of Commerce. The introductory chapters explain the scope and contents of the data and also offer an overview of U.S. foreign trade. The first three sections provide data on the U.S. as a whole; the next two sections offer statistics on exports of each state by country or region of destination and by industry, and also similar data for metropolitan areas. All of the tables are in a time series (generally 1993^-1997, although the start year is different in some sections) so that trends and year-end changes can be analyzed. The volume includes a Notes and Definitions section describing the sources of the statistical tables and their availability. Finally, a detailed subject index provides easy access to the contents. Well-designed, with lucidly written background material, this work contains much useful trade data heretofore scattered in many sources. All the sources are available free on the Web; but library patrons should appreciate having the information pulled together in a print volume. An excellent reference work for students, researchers, and economists, recommended for academic and large public-library collections.


Choice Review

This new entry in the arena of international business reference fills a vital need, since it includes data neither easily available nor packaged so attractively. It starts with a useful introduction and ends with a handy index; the space between is packed with trade data. Headings include "Highlights of US International Transactions," "US Foreign Trade in Services," "US Foreign Trade in Goods," "State Exports of Goods," and "Metropolitan Area Exports of Goods." The latter section's information is extremely difficult to find in this format--it is arranged by destination. Thus, one can find, for example, how many millions of dollars of goods went from Flint, MI, to Japan in 1995--a very nice feature. The format also renders comparisons easy; Phoenix, AZ, for example, exports more goods to Japan than to Mexico. The numerous charts and graphs can be used as visual aids in presentations. The index is very thorough and includes country and city names. This book is a bargain and essential for all international business collections. L. K. Miller; Paradise Valley Community College
