International Political Economy: Managing World Economic Change
International Political Economy: Managing World Economic Change
By Robert A. Isaak
Prentice Hall, 1991, 316 pp.

His approach helps relate domestic affairs to foreign policy and occasionally provides new insights, but the resulting picture does not seem greatly different from that provided by the more familiar views of the world whose exposition fills most of the book.
