Theories of International Political Economy introduces students to the theories that make up the core, semi-periphery, and periphery of the discipline of IPE as it is studied today. Aiming to expose and clarify the differences between the orthodox and the heterodox schools of IPE, esteemed IPEscholar Stephane Paquin expertly guides students through the fundamental principles at the heart of realist, liberal, domestic politics, Marxist, neo-Gramscian, British school, green, and feminist approaches. Engaging and accessible, this concise introduction equips students with the foundation theyneed to comprehend and critically assess existing IPE research and to begin forming the theoretical lens through which they will conduct their own analyses.
Stephane Paquin is a professor at the Ecole nationale d'administration publique and Canada Research Chair in International and Comparative Political Economy.

Editorial Reviews

"This text is a 'keeper'--the kind of book one hangs onto in order to refer to if one wants to specialize in IPE or international relations generally. I would recommend this text most highly for any student who is seriously considering this their major field of interest." --Allan E. Warnke, Vancouver Island University
