Overview

The hallmark approach of this very successful market-leading text is its clear and concise treatment of international trade and finance theory illustrated with a wealth of the most up-to-date contemporary issues and cases that demonstrate the relevance of theory to real-world economic problems. Theoretical discussions are presented in both verbal and graphical terms, making the book highly accessible to students with little economics background. Its concise and flexible format make it an ideal fit for most one-term courses.
