This new edited textbook brings together leading international experts to provide an authoritative introduction to the major subject areas on undergraduate courses in global political economy.

It is a 'stand-alone' textbook that deals with central themes and issues as well as outlining different theoretical global trade and production, global finance and the consequences of globalization. It is divided by subject area into 4 sections for ease of navigation, and then sub-divided into chapters, each of which has been specifically written for this book.

Carefully edited by John Ravenhill, the text reads as an integrated whole and is suitable as an introductory text for undergraduates in both coverage and approach, each chapter making full use of learning aids such as boxes to summarize key terms and debates, chronologies, case studies, web links and further reading, which complement the lively presentation of the subject.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"We have long needed a new introduction to international political economy, and John Ravenhill pulls together some of the best people in the field to provide it. Ravenhill's book covers all the bases: contemporary theory, first-rate introductions to particular issue areas such as trade and finance, and an extended debate on globalization that reflects a variety of perspectives. A first-rate text."-- Stephan Haggard, Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies, University of California, San Diego

"Global Political Economy is a comprehensive and well-organized volume featuring contributions on the major issues of global political economy by leading experts. A notable viture of this volume is its combination of intellectual sophistication and accessibility. I can enthusiastically recommend Global Political Economy for advanced undergraduate courses such as the one I teach at Duke on transnational relations and political economy."-- Robert O. Keohane, James B. Duke Professor of Political Science, Duke University

"John Ravenhill and his colleagues have produced a first-rate collection of essays--the most up-to-date introduction to the field of global political economy now available. This is a must read for scholars and students alike."--Benjamin J. Cohen, Louis G. Lancaster Professor of International Political Economy, University of California, Santa Barbara

"This is one of the few truly 'global' texts on international political economy: Ravenhill has assembled scholars from around the world who have together written a sophisticated yet accessible introduction to IPE."--Kim Richard Nossal, Professor and Head of Department of Political Studies, Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario
