Thanks to everybody for the interest and references.

Let me add one of my own:

Marc Linder (with Julius Sensat Jr), Anti-Samuelson, Urizen books, 1977,
Vol 2,
There are chapters dealing with several aspects of comp.adv. and related
issues, see chap. 23 - 27
(this english version is a condensed edition of a four volume German
edition from 1974, wich probably has a even more detailed refutation of all
kinds of comp.adv. and Hecksher-Ohlin-Samuelson kind of thinking.

Duncan Fooley forwarded my e-mail to Anwar Shaik, who sendt me the
following references in addition to his calssical Science and Society

----------------- from Anwar Shaikh -------------
"Free Trade, Unemployment and Economic Policy", in Global Unemployment,
John Eatwell (ed.), M.E. Sharpe 1995.
