Global Political Economy

Evolution and dynamics, fifth edition

by Robert O'Brien and Marc Williams


Once again, O'Brien and Williams have succeeded in making an excellent text even better. Wide ranging and historically informed, the fourth edition provides up-to-date coverage of both contemporary developments and the latest theoretical trends in the field. -Benjamin Jerry Cohen, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA
This is outstanding in its combination of high-quality scholarship, breadth of coverage and even-handed treatment of all theoretical vantages. An invaluable book for students – and teachers – of IPE. - Randall Germain, Carleton University, Canada
This is a hugely important textbook, which I have found to be extremely helpful for the teaching of International Political Economy. It provides an excellent overview of the key themes in IPE and a platform for students to identify and develop their key interests in a more in-depth way. - Andreas Bieler, University of Nottingham, UK
