New Edition of IPE Textbook

The 4th edition of Introduction to International Political Economy is due to be published later this month. As most of you know, this is a project of the IPE faculty at Puget Sound -- a book we originally wrote for our UPS classes and students, which is now used at more than 200 colleges and universities around the world. A portion of the royalties from the textbook go to support IPE program activities, including our summer research fellowship program. Here are the details:

Introduction to International Political Economy 4/e by David N. Balaam and Michael Veseth

In collaboration with Professors Brad Dillman, Monica DeHart, Karl Fields, Nick Kontogeorgopoulos, Sunil Kukreja, Patrick O'Neil, & Ross Singleton of the International Political Economy Program at the University of Puget Sound

Publisher: Prentice Hall
Copyright: 2008
Format: Paper; 528 pp

ISBN-10: 0136155634
ISBN-13: 9780136155638

For one semester/quarter courses in International Political Economy in Political Science, International Relations, and Economics departments as well as International Studies Programs.

A true introduction to the international political economy (IPE), the text does not assume that students have a background in politics, economy or sociology. This book clearly shows students how politics and economics come together in today's global environment. The text demonstrates 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.

You can find more information and a table of contents on the IPE Textbook home page or the Prentice Hall home page.
