From the Publisher"The editors conclude by laying out how their approach establishes new puzzles, offers stimulating ways to teach, and introduces new advice for policymaking...Specialists in international political economy and those interested in globalization more generally would do well to pick up this book, for the chapters are sure to prick one's intellectual curiosity."
Mark R. Brawley, McGill University, International Journal
"Hobson, Seabrooke and the contributors to this volume join a select group of scholars who are reconceptualizing the study of the global political economy from the bottom up. The result is a unique set of readings with sophisticated conceptual, policy-relevant and pedagogical implications. This is the most innovative and useful collection of essays to be published in a very long time."
Robert A. Denemark, University of Delaware
"Hobson and Seabrooke expertly demonstrate how everyday people have agency in world politics and that agency exists even at the base of the world economy. This book really invites students to become part of a new, incomplete, but exciting research programme - a challenge to which many will want to rise."
Craig N. Murphy, M. Margaret Ball Professor of International Relations, Department of Political Science, Wellesley College
"This collection succeeds admirably in setting out an exciting new research and teaching agenda for IPE. Its innovative analysis of how the majority of the world's population shapes the global economy will be taken up by many other scholars."
Robert O'Brien, Professor of Global Labour Issues, McMaster University
"This imaginative volume offers an unusual bottom-up perspective in a field that wraps the practice of everyday life in the convention of mathematics and the language of institutions. In making this move, Seabrooke, Hobson and colleagues succeed in shifting our attention to an area of social life that conventional analyses of political economy rarely reach. A book that opens new ways of thinking about questions of political economy."
