DESCRIPTION

Drawing on a range of different approaches and perspectives, The New International Political Economy is a bold attempt to set and develop a new agenda for IPE research. Its nine specially commissioned chapters by leading scholars in the field lay the theoretical foundations of a new IPE, provide new perspectives on orthodox IPE concerns, and move beyond the traditional agenda to address previously neglected issues.
