    This was my main textbook for my IPE course this term It’s definitely a better alternative to studying Microeconomics and Macroeconomics themselves although at times this book assumed that I was well versed in concepts that I wasn’t Google was definitely my friend I study POLITICS INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS and HISTORY not ECONOMICS Having said that the book is spilt into two parts The first part is the historical background of how the political economy evolved into what it is today The second part was about the current economy and the different issues that influence it My prof chose mainly to focus on the illicit economy as that is his area of expertise I liked that this book wasn’t TOO DRY and had orange boxes on the pages that brought your attention to information you might not have known It wasn’t too difficult to get into but again I’m not too fond of economic theory so I probably wouldn’t recommend it to anyone unless they were truly interested in IPE

    Wow I can't believe m International Political Economy book is on Goodreads THis was the most straight forward of all the books that I read during my studies in Bristol It had current relevan examples that helped me understand economics better than before It was a real eye opener to the injustices of the world bank and the IMF It encompassed so many ideas in simple and logical manners that made it enjoyable to study

    An excellent overview of prevailing theories in the sphere of global political economy O'Brien and Williams provide a great reconstruction of the current global paradigm and how it emerged beginning with the industrial revolution The text provides an interesting survey of the global economy including international trade transnational production the global financial system and the global division of labour A great reference tool for anyone looking to understand the political motives and paradigms behind economics

    This book would have benefited from the perspectives of multiple authors It is a good introductory course base but I would not recommend it for upper levels or someone with background on the topic

    Excellent overview of an emerging subject Gritty yet well balanced I like the inclusion of gender environment and labour

    Read for Intro to IRG International Relations and Global Studies classNot the best textbook when it comes to dealing with the world It's mostly true and correct but there are many places where the authors' Eurocentric andor capitalist lens showsWhen will we get textbooks written by POC or at least with better treatment of POC especially Indigenous perspectives?

    The tangled web they weave consisted in politics and dynamics were they all sleep together reading books about men and history
