An Introduction to International Political Economy Susan Strange, formerly University of Warwick.
Professor Strange was well known for her unorthodox and stimulating views on the international political economy. Here she provides the student and scholar with a new model synthesising politics and economics by means of a four-faceted structural analysis of the effects of any kind of political authority (including states) on markets, and, conversely, of market forces on states. This refreshingly new framework of analysis is an ideal introductory text.
Students, and many of their teachers, will like the book because it gives a vigorous introduction to both the subject matter of IPE and the holistic cast of mind necessary for understanding it. One cannot read the book without having one s horizons broadened... it should occupy an opening slot on reading lists for IPE courses. International Affairs.
