Review from Arches alumni magazine, Winter 2008
Introduction to International Political Economy
David Balaam and Michael Veseth ’72
528 pages, Prentice Hall
When Puget Sound’s undergraduate IPE program was established in 1991, the available books on the subject were written for graduate students. To fill the void, professors Balaam and Veseth wrote Introduction to International Political Economy, with contributions over the years from a dozen other Puget Sound faculty members. Now in its fourth edition, the text has been adopted by 150 colleges worldwide. Proceeds from the book have been used to support Puget Sound’s IPE Summer Research Fellowship.
