About the Author:

Thomas D. Lairson is the Ronald G. and N. Jayne Gelbman Professor of International Business and Professor of Political Science at Rollins College, where he has taught since 1976. Professor Lairson has served as the First Ford Foundation Professor of International Relations for the Institute for International Relations in Hanoi and is currently the coordinator of a newly funded academic program for Sustainable Development and the Environment at Rollins College.

Review:

"This book surpasses the others especially in its ability to link the economics of IPE with the politics of IPE. It is also better than most others at striking the balance between treating the students intelligently and making the material accessible."

"Ultimately I chose Lairson and Skidmore because of its early chapters on the historical construction of the world economy (chapters 3 and 4) and its very strong chapter on globalization (chapter 5). These, in combination with the very good nuts and bolts chapter on markets (chapter 2), edged out the other books for this course."

"I find the text far more readable than the one I am currently using. In particular, I like the case studies that are presented in many of the chapters."
