A true introduction to the international political economy (IPE), this text 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.

For 1st/2nd year courses in International Political Economy in Political Science, International Relations, and Economics departments.
