Combining history and theoretical approaches with cutting-edge issues and debates, the fourth edition of Global Political Economy provides a sophisticated and authoritative introduction to the subject. Featuring work from an esteemed line-up of international contributors, the fourth edition has been updated with material on the ongoing global financial and governance crises. It also evaluates the prospects for larger developing economies, with a focus on BRICs. The volume is enhanced by numerous pedagogical features including text boxes, end-of-chapter questions, and suggestions for further reading. A Companion Website (coming soon) provides additional resources for students and instructors.
