Review: O’Brien and Williams’s Global Political Economy

Global Political Economy: Evolution and Dynamics
Robert O’Brien and Marc Williams

This is another one that was probably more a textbook than a book, but as I read it cover to cover in undergrad, it counts.

Politically economy is sometimes used as a code word for Marxists, but in O’Brien and Williams it was used to mean the complex interplay between international relations and macro economics. I am not sure how helpful this book was, actually (Dicken sticks in my mind a lot more). That isn’t really a ringing endorsement. I think we’ll have to label this one
