The relationship between the global economy and national security has been an enduring source of interest and debate. This volume contains a set of pioneering studies that paved the way for contemporary work on the political economy of national security as well as some more recent contributions to this literature. These papers address the influence of international economic relations on political conflict, the use and effectiveness of economic statecraft, and the effects of national security concerns on foreign economic relations. The articles contained in this volume will chart a path for research on these topics for years to come.
