9780333689639: The Global Political Economy: Evolution and Dynamics

This new text on global political economy provides a uniquely ranging historical account of the emergence of a worldwide economy since the 15th century combined with a systematic analysis of international political economy today. The book is theoretically informed but, unlike many books in its field, it introduces a range of approaches and shows how these can be applied and how useful they are in tackling--key issues from trade, production, and finance to social divisions, development, and the environment. It concludes by considering global governance and how markets can be regulated to meet human purposes in an increasingly global economy.

Review:

"Comprehensive, theoretically sophisticated, and empirically rich. Right now, this is quite simply the best textbook in the field." - Craig N. Murphy, Wellesley College and President, International Studies Association 2001/2

"A well-pitched, concise and accessible introduction to the fast-changing field of international political economy. Students will be engaged by the authors' judicious blend of theory, history, and contemporary evidence." - Louis W. Pauly, Director, Centre for International Studies, University of Toronto.
