PRAISE FOR THE SEVENTH EDITION
I have been using this wonderful text for the last few years for my upper division undergraduate course on Politics of the World Economy. This new edition brings all of the burning issues right up to date: the weight of China in the IPE, the immigration crisis in Africa and the Middle East, and the shift from multilateral to regional trade schemes. Global Political Economy gracefully weaves together theory and practice, and it strikes a perfect balance between institutions, interests and actors. I look forward to assigning this next edition.

With this new edition, Ted Cohn reaffirms his book's place among the very best texts available in the field of international political economy -- well organized, articulate, and certainly up to date. Students will find it both enlightening and refreshing.
-- Benjamin J. Cohen, University of California, Santa Barbara
Cohn continues to produce an excellent textbook; I wouldn't think of using another. Among textbook authors, only Cohn consistently returns to the theories in each empirical chapter, driving home how the lenses we use shape our understanding of the global political economy.

The seventh edition of Global Political Economy: Theory and Practice is a fully updated, comprehensive textbook that builds on the strengths of the earlier editions but has been updated with a discussion of the ongoing global economic crisis. It contains both an excellent discussion of theoretical debates as well as the main issue areas. Issues are explained in plain language for an easy understanding for university students. This book is an excellent text for courses on international political economy and the like.
