The first book to give students the breadth and depth of scholarship they need to understand the politics of the world economy, THE POLITICS OF INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC RELATIONS has been fully updated to reflect the sweeping changes that continue to reshape the international arena. This Sixth 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. Its new emphasis on the impact of economic 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.
