What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Just when you think nothing new can be said about globalization along comes The Political Economy of Globalization to prove you wrong. High on substance and low on fluff, it provides an original assessment of global finance and investment, macroeconomic policy, regionalism, international institutions and transnational NGOs.' - Robert Wade, Brown University and London School of Economics and Political Science

'The Political Economy of Globalization provides a blend of empirical and analytical insight that takes us beyond the jargon and definitional impasse that has marked much study of globalization in recent years. This excellent collection of well written and original chapters focusing on core issues is a breath of fresh air that will be of interest and value to specialist and student alike.' - Richard Higgott, University of Warwick

'A collection of insightful studies on core issues of globalization providing comprehensive and accessible in-depth account.' - Dr B. Kassayie, South Bank University

'Comprehensive in its survey of key themes in the literature and debates on globalization yet fluent and accessible to an academic audience and the general reader alike.' - Mr B. Skanthakumar, SOAS, London

'Excellent book - clear, succinct, well organised.' - Professor J.D. Armstrong, University of Exeter

'A highly commendable text that argues with authority in a highly accessible mannor, circumventing the often difficult language employed in other texts in this area.' - Bob Millward, University of Central Lancashire'...balanced perspective on globalization that will make it useful reading for students of International Relations.' - Duncan Black, International Affairs'...a very good collection of essays...written by experts in their fields. Woods has managed to get the volume's contributors to remain focused on a set of common concerns, while allowing them to explore the subtleties arising from their individual research agendas.' - Rob Jenkins, The Times Higher Education Supplement
