Born of the author's frustration at the lack of accessible international economics books, International Economics speaks to the demands of a non-technical, international economic market. With a resounding cheer from reviewers who share the same challenges, Gerber has written International Economics, a mainstream, descriptive survey of international economics which is geared toward readers interested in history, political science, and public administration.
