`'Ravenhill's Global Political Economy is extremely accessibile and the quality of the analysis is superb. Most importantly, though, it helps students to unpack big claims.'' Dr Huw Macartney, University of Birmingham `'This text just keeps getting better and better. The coverage is comprehensive, thoroughtly revised to keep up with contemporary developments, and the quality of the scholarship is uniformly high. Students of international political economy could not ask for a more enlightening introduction to the field.'' Professor Benjamin J. Cohen, University of California, Santa Barbara `'Global Political Economy is balanced in its presentation of debates, and rigorous in its arguments, providing an excellent guide for students in understanding international political economy.''
