For one semester/quarter courses in International Political Economy in Political Science, International Relations, and Economics departments as well as International Studies Programs.
A true introduction to the international political economy (IPE), the text does not assume that students have a background in politics, economy or sociology. This book clearly shows students how politics and economics come together in today's global environment. The text demonstrates how an understanding of IPE can help students make sense of global news, business investments, and government policies–by presenting the theories, institutions, and relationships found in IPE in simple ways that retain the complexity of the world issues and intellectual problems addressed.

They creatively apply mainstream and critical perspectives to a variety of global problems like hunger and global warming to show students how the relationships and conflicts between states and markets affect their everyday lives.”–Houman Sadri, University of Central Florida
