About this item

The second edition of International Political Economy continues to be the perfect short introduction to the fundamental theories and issues of international political economy (IPE).

Written in a concise, accessible style by an experienced teacher and scholar, it combines theoretical perspectives, real-world examples, and comparative policy analysis. The text offers students an in-depth, balanced understanding of the contrasting core perspectives in IPE, allowing them to critically evaluate and independently analyze major political-economic events.

Having emerged from both the classical and modern schools of political economy, the book’s unique structure is organized around the threefold world view classification of IPE that the author labels as free-market, institutionalist, and Marxist.

The book:

  • Compares, contrasts, and critiques the different approaches in the context of major global issues such as financial crises, free vs. fair trade, ecological degradation, growing inequality, gender, globalization, and multinational corporations;
  • Explains key economic concepts such as financial markets, banking systems, monetary policy, foreign exchange, Keynesian economics, fiscal policy, comparative advantage, value theory, money, role of corporations, and ecological economics as well as their relationship to political concepts such as international regimes and governance;
  • Contains 30 original figures and tables, review questions at the end of each chapter, and a detailed glossary to enhance student learning;
  • Responds to the call from eminent IPE specialists Robert Keohane and Benjamin Cohen for textbooks that take a pluralistic approach.

This thoroughly updated second edition is essential reading for students of international political economy, economics, political science and global governance.
