INTERNATIONAL POLITICAL ECONOMY focuses on the dynamics of conflict and cooperation among nations as each pursues power and wealth through international economic exchange. The authors provide a historical and topical overview of the development of the world economy from 1815 to the present, helping students understand how and why major economic powers rise and fall. This balanced blend of history, theory, and policy makes the book suitable as a main text for International Political Economy courses or as a supplemental text for an Introductory International Relations course.

"Ultimately I chose Lairson and Skidmore because of its early chapters on the historical construction of the world economy (chapters 3 and 4) and its very strong chapter on globalization (chapter 5). These, in combination with the very good nuts and bolts chapter on markets (chapter 2), edged out the other books for this course."
