About this title Updated in a new 5th edition, this book offers a complete and accessible overview of how politics and economics collide in a global context. It surveys the theories, institutions, and relationships that characterize IPE and highlights them in a diverse range of regional and transnational issues. The bestseller in the field, Introduction to International Political Economy positions readers to critically evaluate the global economy and to appreciate the personal impact of political, economic, and social forces.

The text shows how an understanding of IPE can help students make sense of global news, business investments, and government policies, by presenting the theories, institutions, and relationships found in IPE in simple ways that retain the complexity of the world issues and intellectual problems addressed.

From the Inside Flap: Preface. Indeed the world is ruled by little else. Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist.

Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years back.

It is hard to make sense of a newspaper, a business investment, or a government policy without an understanding of the theories, institutions, and relationships found in IPE. It is difficult, in other words, to understand our everyday lives without some understanding of IPE, so deeply are we now touched by international relations and global events. We believe that IPE is so important that all college students need to understand it in a fundamental way.

Our conviction is that it is possible to present this material in simple ways that retain the complexity of the global issues and intellectual problems we address, but without making the discussion fit only for graduate students.

Our aim is to provide educational materials that will allow "beginners" college freshmen and sophomores to go from 0 to 60 in IPE in a single semester. Our hope is that these students will get excited about IPE as an element of lifelong learning and become better citizens and more knowledgeable individuals in the process. Chapter 1 introduces the fundamental elements of IPE. We will begin with relatively simple tools and ideas, then add layers and detail to make IPE real.

Chapter 5 introduces four theories rational choice, feminist, green, and postmodern that challenge our understanding some IPE questions and events. The second section of the text examines the web of relationships or structures that tie nations and their citizens together.

As a student sitting at your desk, you are linked to people and places around the world in a number of ways which you need to understand if you are to make good personal, business, and social choices.

Chapter 6 looks at production and international trade. Chapter 7 looks at the monetary linkages that bind us together. Chapters 8, 9, and 10 examine, respectively, the debt connections, the security structure, and the ties created by knowledge and technology.

At the end of the first ten chapters, then, you should be able to imagine yourself as part of the international political economy and how you are linked to states and markets around the globe. You should have a fundamental understanding of what these linkages are, and an appreciation of the theories and perspectives that interpret these structures and guide our understanding of them. The second half of the book looks at specific topics and problems in IPE that are essential to a sound understanding of the world today.

Chapters 11 to 14 look at issues and events that are usually associated with the industrial nations of the North. Problems and issues generally associated with the less developed countries of the South are discussed in chapters 15 to Finally, the last three chapters examine global problems.

The global environment and the food crisis are discussed. The very last chapter asks, "Where do we go from here? At the University of Puget Sound, where we teach, all of our students take a course in IPE, or something similar, in their sophomore year. We have written this text to help our students and to help ourselves serve their needs.

We hope you find it a valuable educational resource. The world has changed a lot since the first edition of this textbook appeared in and the second edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect the dynamic environment of IPE. We have retained the basic format that has proved so successful: a survey of theoretical perspectives followed by an analysis of structural connections, leading to sections that explore state-market tensions, North-South relations, and global problems.

Within this structure, each chapter has been carefully revised. A few chapters have received major overhauls; all of them have been updated. Here is a list of the most significant changes. Chapter 1 has been revised to make it a more user-friendly introduction to IPE for beginners but not, as the popular how-to book series has it, for "dummies".

The U. Chapter 5 has been broadened significantly. In place of a chapter on rational choice theory, Michael Veseth has written a new chapter that surveys four theories that, depending upon your viewpoint either challenge or enrich the traditional study of IPE: rational choice, feminist, green, and postmodern theories. We want this chapter to serve as a point of entry for professors who want their students to study one or all of these theoretical perspectives without fundamentally changing the format and focus of the book.

Dave Balaam has written an entirely new chapter 9 on the global security structure, uprooting the discussion from the previous focus on the Cold War and asking students to consider security as a dynamic and many-layered problem. The focus of this chapter is now the model of the developmental state and the question of whether this system of state-market relations is still valid.

The focus of the chapter is now clearly on oil and the recent issues in the IPE of oil. Much of the historical analysis of the first edition chapter has been cut to make room for more recent events. All the chapters have been revised to take into account a number of important IPE events, especially the growing discussion of and concern about economic globalization, the financial crises in Asia and elsewhere, and the advent of a single currency in Europe, the euro.

We have benefited from the contributions and support of many persons, students, colleagues, family, and friends. Finally, we owe debts we can never repay to our families and to our mentors. We love you. David N. Balaam and Michael Veseth Tacoma, Washington.
