Format: Paperback
This book gives a fairly comprehesive and informative view of global political economy.

This said - it's not very conservative with regard to the number of words used to make a point & it doesn't go very indepth or much beyond the fairly basic aspects

If you're looking for a book to explain the more political aspects of the economy then by all means go for this - it will do it, but only relatively superficially.

If you'd rather learn more about the economic system and then work out the political side on your own / from other materials - then get something more focused on the economic side - particularly the history over the theory.

This book provides not just a great broad view of how the politics of economics works but it also deepens one's appreciation of the webs and intricacies of global politics. When our countries sign up to global initiatives we don't realize how tightly our leaders tie our hands. We may not have a choice about that if we want the world to work together. Anyway, Ravenhill is not a rollover for globalization. He sounds like a good guy and his book is very much worth reading (I read the second edition). It's so much better than what we read in most newspapers and on most blogs.
