This volume provides an introduction to the field of Global Political Economy (GPE). It explores some of the approaches that have addressed the key concerns of theorists of GPE; for example. what conditions are most conducive to the emergence of collaborative behaviour among states on economic issues, or what are the determinants of the foreign economic policies of states. It examines various aspects of the debate about globalization as well as the impact of globalization on world poverty, inequality, and the environment. It also considers how globalization has changed the relations between industrialized and less developed economies. This chapter discusses the global financial crisis and the world economy pre-1914, in the interwar period, and post-1945. It also analyses the emergence of GPE as a field and describes a number of approaches to the study of GPE.
