Description

I-PEEL: The International Political Economy of Everyday Life is a student-centred textbook for learning about IPE through the prism of everyday objects and practices. Eight core chapters on topics including social media, debt, food, and clothes show how IPE can be used to understand and question the world around us.

  • A fresh introduction to IPE, which highlights the relevance and prominence of IPE in the real world
  • Establishes the conceptual and theoretical techniques required to engage with the IPE discipline and how those can help us understand the complexity of everyday power relations
  • Prompts ethical self-reflection by asking if everyday economic relations are 'right' or 'good'
  • Learning activities allow students to work through cases and problems, to help form their own views and perspectives on key issues in IPE
  • Encourages students to question the politics of the world, such as what kinds of power relations markets rely upon
  • Also available as an e-book enhanced with self-assessment activities and multi-media content to offer a fully immersive experience and extra learning support

Reviews

"I thought it was very exciting to learn about a subject by linking it to contemporary life. It makes us apply theories/thought to what we experience today, which makes it more understandable." - Priscilla Alves Tomaz, 2nd year Politics and International Relations student at Queen Mary University London

"A new, interesting examination of the global political economy catered towards a new generation of students." - Megan Irvine, 2nd year International Relations student at the University of Surrey

"I think it's a great approach - taking aspects of everyday life and explaining them through IPE is a good way of bringing IPE to a level that is intuitive and immediately recognisable." - Salma Ghandour, 3rd year Politics and International Relations student at the University of Manchester
