When Robert Z. Aliber's The International Money Game first appeared in 1973, it was widely acclaimed as the best - and most entertaining - introduction to the arcane mysteries of international finance on the market. The seventh edition of this classic work has again been fully rewritten to take account of the immense changes in the world economy since the previous edition, and includes a new chapter on asset pricing and bubbles.
