EXCERPTS FROM REVIEWS:

In a Stream of Windows, a most eminent economist of our time, once again shows himself to be an outstanding opinion shaper and communicator for the benefit of the citizens of our global village.
- Arthur Dunkel, Director General of GATT (1981-93)

Jagdish Bhagwati is that rare economist who thinks broadly and writes clearly. His high intelligence, lively style, and good humor are all in evidence in this collection.
- Foreign Affairs

This book has freshness, exuberance, imagination and artistry in presenting feelings, mastery of technique, and above all, a charismatic presence to rivet the attention of the reader.
- The Hindu

Anyone who reads this . . Will emerge a lot less confused and at least a little more optimistic.
- The Wall Street Journal

An excellent tour d'horizon of trade and immigration issues.
- The Boston Sunday Globe.
