Reviews

"Provoking and highly readable: this book is just what every student and teacher of Global Political Economy needs. Global Political Economy offers a detailed and accessible understanding of the theoretical and empirical foundations of the field, while also showing the reader how such foundations can be ripped up, debated, and revisited. I wish I had this book when I was a student." - Professor Sophie Harman, Queen Mary University of London, UK
