Description
The readings in International Political Economy: Perspectives on Global Power and Wealth are primarily intended to introduce the study of international political economy to those with little or no prior knowledge of it. The book is designed for use in courses in international political economy, international relations, and international economics. The selections present both clear and identifiable theoretical arguments and important substantive material. Fifteen of the 31 articles are new to this fourth edition of our book, and the theoretical approach has been updated to reflect the changing state of both the world and the field of international political economy.
Although the selections can be read in any order, they are grouped in seven parts, which reflect some of the more common organizing principles used in international political economy courses. Each part begins with an introduction bothe editors that provides background information and highlights issues raised in the readings. Each reading is preceded by an abstract summarizing its specific arguments and contributions. The readings were edited to eliminate extraneous or dated information, and most footnotes were removed.
