Product Description


'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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

An exceptional summary of New Trade Theory 15 July 2012
By Christopher Frueh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a wonderful book to stumble across. It explained perfectly what I was not understanding about international monetary investment and sparked my interest in learning more about NTT and economic geography.

The book that made me an economist 2 Nov 2001
By "miquez" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a Political Science student at Trinity College, I have long been interested in political affairs. Mainly in theories, governments, wars, international security and the like. Then I took an insuperable International Political Economy course, the backbone of which was an unprecedentedly amazing teacher and this book! A book with words like Von Thunenization, with similes such as the state as mafia, and with an incredibly comprehensive insight into why things are going on in the way the are nowadays. A must for everyone who has ever been concerned with inequality, hegemony, but just very simply with economic issues.
