This book contributes to the current revival of dependency approaches for the analysis of global capitalism. Reflecting on contemporary uses of the “Dependency Research Program” (DRP) and a refined analytical toolkit, it makes two distinctive contributions to this revival: the analysis of new “situations of dependency”, and the understanding of the “mechanisms of dependency”. The individual chapters draw from a wide range of cases and data from Latin America and Europe and imbricate concepts and ideas from the DRP with those of other approaches, from post-Keynesian economics to structural economics, institutional economics, regulation theory, comparative capitalisms, business politics, economic geography and critical finance studies, providing a rich array of possibilities for virtuous inter-disciplinary cross-fertilization. This volume is a valuable contribution for those interested in understanding how global capitalism works in Latin America, Europe and beyond.

This text offers a rethinking of the field of international political economy in an era of growing but uneven globalization. Even as global integration advances, states play central roles as partners with the largest of global firms, as the catalysts of competitiveness and economic growth, as the creators of global institutions, and in promoting and responding to global interdependence. Indeed, the struggle for power and wealth within and among states underscores the primacy of politics in understanding current realities. At the same time, new issues and actors complicate the global agenda as it expands to address the environment, global health, and food security. By offering a clear explanation of basic concepts, contextualizing the presentation of theoretical debates, and placing current events in historical context, International Political Economy ensures students a deep understanding of how the global economy works and the ways in which globalization affects their lives and those of people around the world. Key Content and Features Engages debates over the reach and significance of globalization. Examines the sources and consequences of global financial instability. Explores the origins and consequences of global inequality. Compares various strategies of development and state roles in competitiveness. Discusses the role of key international economic institutions. Considers the impact of the rise of China on the global economy and the potential for war and peace. Illustrates collective efforts to fight hunger, disease, and environmental threats. Includes numerous graphs and illustrations throughout and end of chapter discussion questions. Links key concepts for each chapter to a glossary at the end of the book. Provides a list of acronyms at the outset and annotated further readings at the end of each chapter. Offers additional resources on a web site related to the text, including a list of links to IPE-related web pages.

This book provides an overview of the dynamics of the contemporary global political economy, with an emphasis on explaining these dynamics in both theoretical and practical terms. It opens with a chapter on exactly what the study of IPE entails, looking at the way in which politics and economics interact, the relationship between domestic and international factors, and the role of the state. Watson goes on to outline the major theoretical approaches to IPE, from the traditional theories including liberalism and Marxism, to alternative theories including rational choice and new institutionalism. In Part Two, she outlines the major policy issues characterizing IPE, and in Part Three, she looks at case studies to illustrate the theoretical points she has made. These include the world trade negotiations at Seattle, a description of the reasons for growth in regional integration arrangements such as the EU, and a discussion of the impact of capital flight.

'There is no better guide through the terrain of international political economy. Jerry Cohen has been a major contributor since the contemporary field emerged in the late 1960s at the intersection of international relations and international economics. He remains a superbly clear writer with first-hand knowledge of the key developments in what is now a truly global discipline. I recommend this book enthusiastically for introductory courses at the undergraduate or graduate levels.' - Louis W. Pauly, University of Toronto, Canada 'Benjamin J. Cohen's Advanced Introduction to International Political Economy evaluates the fragmented intellectual landscape of international political economy and suggests points of conversation, if not integration, among its varied elements. His analysis is wide-ranging and balanced, geographically and in its examination of a variety of standpoints; it is engaging in its combination of sympathy and criticism. All advanced students of the field will benefit from reading it.' - Robert O. Keohane, Princeton University, US 'A concise, readable and deeply informed survey of different approaches to international political economy. Essential reading for students in the field. Even advanced professionals will appreciate the diversity of perspectives examined. Cohen aims to create a more open field of IPE that appreciates and learns from difference. This book is a major contribution towards that goal.' - David A. Lake, University of California, San Diego, US 'Jerry Cohen occupies that rare position from which, when he defines a field, other people sit up and take notice. Here, his experience, insight and vision are brought to bear on how best to define international political economy (IPE) for students who are already familiar with its basic subject matter. Written with his usual panache and in his usual engaging prose, this is a must-read book for both advanced students of IPE and the people who teach them.' - Matthew Watson, University of Warwick, UK Elgar Advanced Introductions are stimulating and thoughtful introductions to major fields in the social sciences and law, expertly written by some of the world's leading scholars. Designed to be accessible yet rigorous, they offer concise and lucid surveys of the substantive and policy issues associated with discrete subject areas. In this unique and original advanced introduction, Professor Benjamin Cohen pinpoints the essential principles of international political economy and illuminates the full array of perspectives to be found across the globe in this rich field of study. Key Features include: * Provides a comprehensive global survey of IPE. * Concise introduction to the field written in an easily accessible, non-technical form. * In depth analysis of the most established American and British schools of IPE. * Extended discussion of other key national and regional traditions, focusing on the European continent, Latin America, Australia, Canada and China. * Combines a unique sketch of the geography of IPE with insight into how communities fit together. Written in a concise and lively style, the volume serves as an accessible yet thoughtful introduction to international political economy that will be an excellent supplement to leading texts used by advanced students and scholars specializing in international political economy and global political economy.
