Andrew P. Cortell is Assistant Professor of International Affairs at Lewis & Clark College. He is the coeditor (with Susan Peterson) of Altered States: International Relations, Domestic Politics, and Institutional Change.
Presenting a fresh approach to the study of international political economy, this volume covers:
the systemic characteristics of the liberal world order,
the role of international institutions,
domestic economic politics and policies
the strategies and behaviour of multinational enterprises.
The volume also includes topical discussion of the challenges to the global economy from the recent financial crisis and analysis of economic politics, in particular the regions of Africa and Europe as well as the countries of Japan and South Korea.
With contributions from prominent scholars in political science, economics and business studies, who have all contributed greatly to advancing the study of political economy over the last decade, Governing the Global Economy aims to bridge the gap between undergraduate textbooks and advanced theory. It is essential reading for all students and scholars of international political economy and globalization.
This important volume presents innovative approaches to fundamental issues in global political economy. Together they provide multiple arguments and avenues for rethinking global political economy in a time of turmoil and system transformation. It will appeal to those interested in seeing new perspectives and healthy heterodoxy in the study of political economy.
