Trade Battles uses data from over 215 in-depth interviews with Mexican, Canadian, and U.S. trade negotiators; labor and environmental activists; government officials; and extensive archival materials to assess how activists politicized trade policy for the first time during NAFTA negotiations. It also examines how this activism influenced trade policy after NAFTA.
