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 organisation – 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.
Critical Acclaim
'Global Political Economy is sweeping in its coverage of the major sub-areas of IPE, as well as its treatment of leading contributions to the field. The analysis of the three leading theories and nine sub-areas is probing, thoughtful and impressively balanced. This book will be useful for intermediate and advanced undergraduate courses, graduate students, and public officials at all levels of governance'
– David Deese, Boston College, US

‘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
