Review Praise for the Seventh Edition The seventh edition of Balaam and Dillman's text is better than ever - revised extensively to bring the coverage of both theory and events right up to the present moment. The style is lucid, and the abundant new text boxes are carefully calibrated to explain complex concepts and issues in international political economy.
In a field crowded with textbooks, I can think of no better introduction to the subject. Benjamin J. Cohen, University of California-Santa Barbara This textbook does what few do: It provides a solid theoretical understanding for the subject while giving students insight into why it matters. Balaam and Dillman bring theory to life by demonstrating how and why the principles of political economy affect the major processes and events of our time, from Brexit to BRICS to global health to global climate.
Students will embrace this insightful, engaging, and relevant text. Robert L. Ostergard, Jr. Balaam and Dillman thoroughly present the key theoretical debates in the field, and issue areas from international trade to global health are updated as well as historically grounded.
At the same time, the material is well-organized and very accessible to students. These are the very attributes I aspire to when teaching IPE. Glenn R. This new edition's expansive discussion of Constructivist and neo-Marxist contributions to the post-financial crisis debate and the search for alternatives to the liberal economic orthodoxy is a welcome contribution.
But what really makes the text unique is the breadth of topics covered: The new empirical material on Trump, fake news, China, and the refugee crisis shows how the IPE toolkit is essential to understanding major contemporary developments in the global economy; and it is the only textbook to examine the illicit economy, the political economy of the Middle East, and global health.
In short, this is an absolute must-read. Huw Macartney, University of Birmingham This classic text's updated new edition provides a comprehensive introduction to the theories, structures, and debates that today's world economy revolves around. Refined and carefully curated to sample cutting issues such as rising populism, illicit trade, climate change, and cyber warfare, the authors strike an impressive balance in showing both the order and tumult that characterizes today's IPE in a way few texts are able to deliver.
Jeffrey Lewis, Cleveland State University A grasp of the global political economy has become indispensable for competent analysis of domestic and international politics. In its last iteration, Balaam and Dillman's by now classic book offers a compact - yet comprehensive - shortcut into the economic and political dynamics, exploring key theoretical perspectives and policy doctrines behind matters ranging from global production networks to the refugee crisis, the current predicament of the European Union, the tempestuous effects of information technology, and the rise of China.
Its great strength is not only its contemporaneity but also in its topical breadth and depth. Most importantly, Balaam and Dillman equip students with the necessary analytical tools to apply empirically what they have learned theoretically, bequeathing them an indispensable asset in the classroom and their careers.
Lukas K. Danner, Florida International University The authors have once again produced a comprehensive text covering central theories, institutions, and issues pertinent to understanding the international political economy. The writing is lucid and easy to follow, and it is especially appropriate for the undergraduate student without a background in the study of IPE.

I was initially excited to go through this book and gain a greater understanding of international political economy, the 6th edition of this book had great reviews and I thought that a 7th edition update would be very interesting given some political economic events that have happened since the 6th edition.
Unfortunately, I became very disappointed when a significant portion of the first chapter was devoted to criticizing and opining on President Trump and his policies. Rather than present conceptual and objective arguments about international political economy, the authors have tipped their hand and shown their political bias, which makes it difficult not to scrutinize any academic argument. I'll update this review if the rest of the book gets better, but the visceral treatment of President Trump and populism in general distracts from the academic virtue of the text.
Since this was an intro class it helped to have a text suitable for that setting. However, as an intro text it also did a good job of providing introductory tools, scenarios, etc. However, three things I liked about this text in an introduction: 1. It offers several perspectives and critical analyses of each in the discipline of IPE 2. Offers not just "topics" and "descriptions" of each, but also provides current context for "real-world" application of the different perspectives. Sourcing and review questions are excellent for further, more in-depth knowledge acquisition.
I loved the class and the professor and I actually liked the text more than I thought I would. To state the obvious given the above: For more advanced students, this is probably not a good text choice on the subject. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands.
