    Tobias den Haan

    A decent course book for students of IPE or those who wish to know more about international trade, economics and institutions. At times a little too centred on the U.S. and sometimes a bit lacking in historical depth and accuracy.

    This is a magnificent book, one of the most important I have read. I finish it with a better understanding of the national economy and its relations to the international system. A drawback, however, is the reflexive focus on the USA. I would have preferred it were the focus on a country without the advantages and dominance of contemporary International Economy which the USA possesses. A matter of personal preference does not detract from the book's overall quality.

    This is a decent textbook on IPE. It is dated and needs a major refresh with more current literature cited. It is neoliberal in outlook, so if you are looking for a Marxist text to use in your class, this is not it. The book is strongest when discussing trade and weakest when discussing finance. There also is no math in the book. It needs to be supplemented with an economics text.

    This book is by no means easy to get through, especially if you don't have a strong background in economics, but it is very clear and a great way to gain an understanding of the globalization of the world economy and what globalization entails.

    textbook for one of my classes. very pleased with it. not much of your typical deceitful 'math'. familiary sounding concepts and theories explained very comprehensively (I don't think I've ever read a textbook this clear). The endless examples kind of bugged me, but I recognize it's good to drag in perceived evidence - I just don't like reading facts. This pretty much is a good introduction in order to understand some of what's in the newspaper, but don't expect a complete picture.

This pretty much is a good introduction in order to understand some of what's in the newspaper, but don't expect a complete picture. What concerns me most however is Oatley's very limited and frankly distorted view of what he calls the anti-globalization movement. He believes he takes up the issues with intellectual honesty, but what he discusses simply is not representative - his is a political theoretically liberal/social democratic perspective. Once again I am reminded how far this anti-globalisation is from ivory academia. decent effort, Oatley. But please, pick up some other lit. You seem to have the heart and the scepsis required

    This book is a good introduction into international political economy for those interested. It is mainly directed at individuals newly studying the matter as it is a book written with a clear language and it is not as technical as a book directed at professionals. Yet, often I felt the book was very very basic, more basic than even a newcomer would like when dividing things usually into parts, as in weakness and strength. Overall, it is a book worth reading as an introduction.
