International Political Economy (IPE) has become one of the most innovative and productive areas of International Relations in recent years. With origins in classical political economy, heterodox economics, political science, human geography, sociology and other social sciences, IPE has gained in academic weight and political relevance during the past thirty years and has come to embrace a diverse range of disciplinary perspectives. This five-volume set draws together the key foundational materials from a range of disciplinary sources, allowing students at all levels to have access to the complex origins of this growing body of historical and contemporary scholarship. Consisting of entries drawn from academic journals, books and other appropriate sources and representing both the historical origins of IPE as well as some of the foremost contemporary voices, this set is introduced by an essay outlining the development of IPE since the 1980s and explaining the key themes represented by the entries chosen. Contents: Volume I on the History and Theories of IPE presents, in a systematic manner, the seminal theoretical and historical pieces that shaped the present agenda of IPE. Volume II on States, Power and Hegemony traces the development of theories of hegemony, from orthodox theories such as the 'hegemonic stability theory' through to responses to globalization and current debates on the governance of the world economy. Volume III on Central Issues in IPE: Production, Trade and Finance addresses the key structural changes that have taken place in the past three decades in the sphere of finance, production and trade. Volume IV on IPE in the New Century: Emerging Issues and Theories analyses some of the emerging problems in contemporary IPE such as the changing structural configuration of global political economy and the so-called 'shadow' political economy.

About the Author
My work lies at the intersection between international relations, political economy, political theory, sociology and human geography. I have been working for many years on three interrelated areas. I am particularly interested in state theory and in the changing nature of the state and modes of governance in the contemporary globalised economy. I have written on the changing nature of the state in the age of globalisation. I am interested not only in the most powerful states, but also in the smallest states in the world, the tax havens, which have become, together with offshore finance, a second area of research interest. I have done in additional considerable research on different facets of contemporary theory, from realism to constructivism to post-Marxism. I am particularly interested in developing an alternative approach to political economy drawn on evolutionary institutionalism, post-rationalist perspectives and libidinal theories of political economy, the latter often confused with poststructuralism
