  5. State Capitalism

    State Capitalism

    Edited by Barbara Krug
    This book takes as its starting point the question of whether contemporary state capitalism simply uses different tools than earlier or other variants of capitalism, or whether it is an altogether new kind of economic regime. It brings together key research and commentary which will help to define the concept of contemporary state capitalism as an economic model and present a nuanced view of state capitalism in action. The editor has selected the articles on the basis of their academic merit, but has also included articles representative of the specific academic climate of a certain time such as Marxist-based concepts. Although these may look ‘out-of date’ or have been dismissed as unsatisfactory, they are nevertheless important for an understanding of the development of the debate. A clear original introduction by the editor provides an illuminating guide to this topic and indicates new areas for further study and analysis. Learn More

  7. Political Corruption

    Political Corruption

    Edited by Bo Rothstein
    Political corruption is a problem as old as society itself. As a fixture of political science and related disciplines, however, it is new and rapidly-developing, having only received very modest coverage until the late 1990s. The recent shattering of the taboo surrounding the discussion of corruption, largely attributed to its re-definition as an economic problem, has resulted in a torrent of new material on the subject. The most important of this has been brought together in this interrogative and authoritative collection. Learn More

  10. Trade in Asia

    Trade in Asia

    Edited by Richard Pomfret
    This comprehensive collection brings together contributions that have increased our understanding of trade in Asia. Early debates centered on the advantages and disadvantages of joining the global economy as exporters to the high-income countries, while trade within Asia was of minor importance. Increasingly, however, trade spilled across Asian borders, and as production chains became more complex attention has shifted towards the organization of international trade within Asia and specifically the operation of global or regional value chains. An original Introduction by the editor reviews the wider literature, in which key contributions often appeared in regional publications, working papers or other outlets that may be hard to access.
