NEW: International Economics and Business (Beugelsdijk, Brakman, Garretsen, Van Marrewijk)
This book is a remarkable achievement. It covers all the
pressing international economic issues of our day in an accessible yet thorough
manner. The authors adroitly combine illustrative data and essential theory to
explain the hows and whys of trade and trade liberalization, the delocation of
firms and multinational activity, capital flows, currency and financial crises, and
the role of international organisations.
Richard Baldwin, Professor of International Economics, Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva
International trade and international business have hitherto existed in two separate worlds, a world of nations and a world of firms, in academic teaching and even in research. This book gives us a welcome integration of the two at the level of teaching.

Very few textbooks exist that examine the working of the global economy through the three lenses of international trade, international finance, and international investment. This book has it all and does it well.
Lorraine Eden, Professor of Management and Mays Research Fellow, Mays Business School, Texas A&M University
Understanding the enormous changes taking place in the world economy requires the perspectives of many different disciplines, of which international economics and international business are two of the most relevant. Yet until now these two fields have interacted very little. This new text does a superb job of combining the insights of these two complementary academic fields.
J. Peter Neary, Oxford University
This is a fascinating book with a practical approach to international economics that enhances our understanding of the globalization process.
Hans-Werner Sinn, President of the Ifo Institute for Economic Research, Munich
A monumental achievement. The only international economics textbook on the market that appropriately describes the role of the firm in the global economy.
