Global Political Economy: Understanding the International Economic Order

Availability: Ready to download

This book is the eagerly awaited successor to Robert Gilpin's 1987 The Political Economy of International Relations, the classic statement of the field of international political economy that continues to command the attention of students, researchers, and policymakers. The world economy and political system have changed dramatically since the 1987 book was published. The This book is the eagerly awaited successor to Robert Gilpin's 1987 The Political Economy of International Relations, the classic statement of the field of international political economy that continues to command the attention of students, researchers, and policymakers. The world economy and political system have changed dramatically since the 1987 book was published. The end of the Cold War has unleashed new economic and political forces, and new regionalisms have emerged. Computing power is increasingly an impetus to the world economy, and technological developments have changed and are changing almost every aspect of contemporary economic affairs. Gilpin's Global Political Economy considers each of these developments. Reflecting a lifetime of scholarship, it offers a masterful survey of the approaches that have been used to understand international economic relations and the problems faced in the new economy. Gilpin focuses on the powerful economic, political, and technological forces that have transformed the world. He gives particular attention to economic globalization, its real and alleged implications for economic affairs, and the degree to which its nature, extent, and significance have been exaggerated and misunderstood. Moreover, he demonstrates that national policies and domestic economies remain the most critical determinants of economic affairs. The book also stresses the importance of economic regionalism, multinational corporations, and financial upheavals. Gilpin integrates economic and political analysis in his discussion of global political economy. He employs the conventional theory of international trade, insights from the theory of industrial organization, and endogenous growth theory. In addition, ideas from political science, history, and other disciplines are employed to enrich understanding of the new international economic order. This wide-ranging book is destined to become a landmark in the field. -- "Booklist"

    Yup, I'm that much of a dork. This book is so fucking dry sometimes though you might feel like you'd rather be in prison, however it's extremely informative

    Gilpin contributes a phenominal introductory book for the study of political economy. I found it through a recommended reading section from the London School of Economics Political Economy masters program. His explanation of the importance of the political economy field is succinct and well taken. World events need to be examined with both economics and political lens, not just one by itself.

    Die Kernaussage des Buches ist, dass nationale und regionale Gefüge trotz aller Globalisierung immer noch die wichtigsten Einflussfaktoren auf die Wirtschaft (sowohl die nationale als auch die Weltwirtschaft) sind. Gut zu lesen und in den Theorien nicht veraltet.

    Very long. Very dry. Very informative. Reading this book brought me back to one of my first courses in college: Introduction to International Relations. While in school, I found International Political Economy (IPE) to be very tedious. However, not paying attention caused me to miss a big part of international relations. This is why I read the book, and I'm glad I did.

    A good introduction in Global Political Economy. Makes a good fusion between IR and economics. One of few realistic books written about global economic issues with a theoretical perspective combining a realist theory (hegemonic stability) with economic liberalism). 12 years past but still useful and informative.

    IPE is the realm of political science that I find dreadfully boring, nevertheless I found this book quite informative and helped expand my understanding of the subject. It was used as the primary text in an IPE course I took and I think it was a good choice. Even being 15 years old, it is still very relevant.

    Walaupun ia mewarisi tradisi realis, tetapi siapa lagi pemikir yang analisanya tentang ekonomi politik global begitu dalam dan luas, untuk saat ini, selain Gilpin?

    Hard to say how good this book actually is to just pick up and read, but the class I read this book for was so good and I learned so much that I have to give it a 5.

    This book was my introduction to IPE, and while it is very informative, I don't know what I think of the subject yet, which is coloring what I think of the book thus far.

    A very dense read. Is often repetitive in the material. Gilpin gives a great introduction into Political Economy. This is a great book to read before Trust, by Fukuyama.
