Economics is business and politics is power. In this insightful book, David Reisman explores the interaction between authority and exchange in a global village where individual nation states – once the pinnacle of political organization – increasingly depend on each other for their material well-being.

Taking a transnational and impartial perspective, the author builds a comprehensive and intricate narrative. He dissects the emergence of the contemporary global economy and explains its impact on the sovereignty and strength of nations. Reisman explores the ways in which liberals, socialists and nationalists can reach a viable consensus in a new social order where the national interest must be the global interest as well.

Offering authoritative, integrated and critical guidance to a topic that is of ever greater importance, this book is crucial reading for students of global political economy and international politics.
‘In a crowded textbook market, Reisman's Global Political Economy stands out for its fresh heterodox perspective. Building outward from more conventional analytical approaches, Reisman offers unique insights into the interactions between economics and politics on the world stage. Accessible in style, the book is both instructive and provocative.’
– Benjamin J. Cohen, University of California, Santa Barbara, US
