"Global Political Economy is an invaluable teaching resource. It is distinctive in its historically-rooted approach to IPE. The chapters also sample more theoretical approaches. For this third edition, both the book and its online resource package have been updated to cover the 2008 financial crisis and its implications. I recommend the result to teachers and students of IPE.
" - Ngaire Woods, University of Oxford
"With extensive revisions to take account of recent events, the third edition of this valuable text remains the most up-to-date introduction to the field of global political economy available anywhere. This is a must-read for scholars and students alike.
" - Benjamin J. Cohen, University of California, Santa Barbara
"The only place that students can find many of the leading scholars in IPE writing about their specialist subjects in a general way...the best source for students.
" - Iain Hardie, University of Edinburgh
