International Political Economy
(source: Joan Edelman Spero and Jeffrey Hart, The Politics of International Economic Relations, 7th Edition)
The bibliography reflects the organization of the book. The first section on general and theoretical works lists general studies and collections that encompass the broad subject of international political economy. The three bibliographical headings that follow denote the three-part division of the study: the Western system, the North-South system, and the East-West system. Each of these has a general subsection that cites works encompassing subtopics for the particular subsystem. Other subtopics correspond to the chapter subdivisions: money, trade, investment, and so on. With a few exceptions, individual articles from general works already cited under general subdivisions are not cited specifically under the various topical headings.
Publications by governmental and intergovernmental organizations are treated in three ways. Important official studies are included in the appropriate category in the first four sections. Important official serial publications are included in a separate category entitled official publications. Finally, because of space limitations some items are not listed. For example, because the U.S. Congressional hearings' bearing on the politics of international economic relations are voluminous they are not repeated here, but are, however, cited in the notes. Those who wish to pursue research in this field should note the significance of hearings such as the Bretton Woods agreements, the Marshall Plan, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, various trade and foreign aid hearings, and hearings on the problems of the international monetary system, the influence of multinational corporations, and East-West relations. Similar material from international organizations has also been excluded from the bibliography. Researchers should note the importance of proceedings of the various United Nations bodies such as the General Assembly and UNCTAD and the voluminous material generated by international organizations such as the IMF and IBRD, the GATT, the OECD, and regional organizations.
Major newspapers and journals useful for the study of international political economy are cited in a final section.
