THE POLITICS OF INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC RELATIONS is the first book to give students the breadth and depth of scholarship they need to truly understand the politics of today’s world economy. The exciting new seventh edition has been completely updated to reflect the sweeping changes that continue to reshape the international arena. The new edition strengthens the text’s contemporary coverage of political and economic relations, economic polarization in developing nations, and the roots of economic decline in centrally planned economies. An emphasis on the impact of globalization makes this definitive text ideal for use as a core text for the International Political Economy course or as a supplement in the International Relations course.
