'States versus Markets combines an original interpretation of the operation of the international economy with a survey of its development since the sixteenth century. Provocative and comprehensive, this is a book that significantly deepens our understanding of the global political economy.' - Jeffry Frieden, Harvard University 'Combining insights from economic geography, history, and international relations, States versus Markets makes an outstanding contribution to contemporary debates on the nature and trajectory of global capitalism. Stimulating and iconoclastic, this fine work deserves a wide readership, both inside and outside the classroom.' - Louis W. Pauly, University of Toronto 'Unlike many simplistic works on the global economy, States versus Markets offers us a clear understanding of how and where 'Globalization' came from and what 'Globalization' actually means...This welcome second edition builds - and considerably improves - on the very considerable merits of the original. It is not only an impressive work of scholarship but also a delight to read. - Geoffrey R.D. Underhill, University of Amsterdam
