Economic Power in a Changing International System

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 2000 - 230 pages
Economic Power in a Changing International System calls attention to the patterns and trends that compose today's fast-changing global system. By analyzing the economies of the world's major powers -- the United States, Japan, the European Union, Russia, and China -- the authors contend that the contemporary world is dominated by economic, rather than military, considerations. Following this, it is the state that will play a large role in the increasing advancement of globalization. Comprehensive, informative, and lucidly drawn, this book is an invaluable source of reference to all those interested in international relations and the shaping of our post-Cold War world.
