Description - Rethinking Global Political Economy by Kurt Burch
This important volume presents innovative approaches to fundamental issues in global political economy. Together they provide multiple arguments and avenues for rethinking global political economy in a time of turmoil and system transformation. The authors collected here consider similar problems from a wide variety of different perspectives. In particular, the authors survey the vicissitudes of globalization, the processes of global capitalism, and the building of progressive social theory developments, answering questions such as: What are the defining concepts in contemporary international political economy (IPE)? Why has mainstream theory in IPE so far failed to give rise to policies able to bring prosperity to more than a fraction of the world's people? How can we re-conceive these concepts to produce better theories and more equitable and effective policies? Rethinking Global Political Economy contains analysis of history, linguistics, class, culture, empirical data and normative concerns. It will appeal to those interested in seeing new perspectives and healthy heterodoxy in the study of political economy.
