Product Description

Review

“Balaam and Dillman have created the most comprehensive and engaging IPE text available. They creatively apply mainstream and critical perspectives to a variety of global problems like hunger and global warming to show students how the relationships and conflicts between states and markets affect their everyday lives.”–Houman Sadri, University of Central Florida

 

Introduction to International Political Economy just keeps getting better and better, especially now with its extensive commentary on the causes and implications of the recent global economic crisis. This is quite simply the best IPE textbook around.”—Benjamin Jerry Cohen, University of California-Santa Barbara

I read this as a student and reading it got me through my exams!
It gives a good grounding and basis in IPE, presentation is a bit dry, but its a text book!
Buy it if you want to learn about IPE. It can lead onto other books if you are interested.

Dr. Wayne K. Maynard, LaGrange College 27 July 2000
By Dr. Wayne K. Maynard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Unfortunately for those of us who teach International Political Economy to undergraduates on a regular basis, most text books on the subject are either better suited to a graduate-level course, or are still mired in the past. I am grateful to David Balaam and Michael Veseth for providing a fresh, up to date, approach. I particularly like the fact that they cover basic theory as well as the modern structures of the international system. Perhaps most important to me (because I expect my students to acutally read their text) is that their book can not only be understood by undergrads, it is far less likely to be used as a sleep aid that any of its competitors.

Understanding the way things work. 18 Jun. 2002
By Edwin Carcao Guerra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read this book during my course of IPE while studying an MBA. These book will really help students, financial advisors, CEO's, politicians and everyone involved in International Management to make better analysis and take better decisions. Some time people believes in a conspiracy and take events like a isolated things, the fact is that everything is related and the three major perspectives of the world are in constant conflict everyday. ¿The three major perspectives? Yes: The liberals and the free trade perspective, the nationalists and the structuralism or modern socialist. It also covers the green perspective (oriented to take care of the environment) . Balaam makes a very clear analysis and he doesn't take sides so you will understand the way thinks happen and the media and politicians will not cheat on you to push you to "take sides on poll's". Enjoy.

Both Comprehensive and Accessible 13 Jun. 2008
By Andrew J. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Undisputedly, this is the most comprehensive and accessible text on the subject. David Balaam and Michael Veseth have created a resource that is easy to understand without sacrificing the quality of the content. Introduction to International Political Economy is a thorough analysis of our modern world using the instruments of economics, politics, and sociology. Always engaging and insightful, this overview of our international community provides the reader with a foundation on which to develop their understanding of global current events.

Typical textbook 11 April 2011
By Sophia H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a perfect introduction to IPE, as the title suggests. It offers thorough explanations of important IPE terms and concepts and provides interesting case studies that further expound on those terms and concepts. Chapters are lengthy, but the authors throw in unexpected references and metaphors that keep the reader's attention. For someone like me who was previously largely uninformed about IPE, this book is helpful for forming a working vocabulary and understanding of IPE.
