Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: 'A concise, readable and deeply informed survey of different approaches to international political economy. Essential reading for students in the field. Even advanced professionals will appreciate the diversity of perspectives examined. Cohen aims to create a more open field of IPE that appreciates and learns from difference. This book is a major contribution towards that goal.'
- David A. Lake, University of California, San Diego, US

'Jerry Cohen occupies that rare position from which, when he defines a field, other people sit up and take notice. Here, his experience, insight and vision are brought to bear on how best to define international political economy (IPE) for students who are already familiar with its basic subject matter. Written with his usual panache and in his usual engaging prose, this is a must-read book for both advanced students of IPE and the people who teach them.'
- Matthew Watson, University of Warwick, UK
