About the Author

Tony Porter is Associate Professor and Chair, Department of Political Science at McMaster University.


"Tony Porter has long been a leading scholar in examining and explaining the tangled webs of organization and politics that characterize global finance in the twenty-first century. These webs cut across and link the categories of public and private, domestic and international, market and hierarchy, and formal and informal institutions and processes. In a world that is both shrinking and yet developing more and more complex forms of multilevel governance, Globalization and Finance does double duty. It is both a textbook that introduces this potential minefield in clear and accessible terms, and a path-breaking exercise in paradigm-building."Philip G. Cerny, Rutgers University

"Tony Porter's Globalization and Finance covers everything you ever wanted to know on the subject: theory, data, history, policy, impacts and ethics. All is meticulously researched, thoughtfully analyzed, and lucidly written. Porter makes global finance both interesting and accessible. An empowering read!"Jan Aart Scholte, University of Warwick

"Tony Porter not only tackles the most salient issues and approaches relating to the globalization of finance, but does so in a highly accessible manner. Students will find this book an invaluable introduction to the topic."

Susanne Soederberg, Queen's University at Kingston, Ontario

"Tony Porter's book presents an interesting viewpoint on globalisation and global finance....The narrative is a rich mixture of history, institutional economics, international finance and social science including political science."
