This book provides a good introduction to the field of political economy and seems best suited for undergraduates and teachers. It gives a broad overview on current economic processes and problems, discusses economic systems and theories by proceeding from Classical Political Economy, via the critique of capitalism from a Marxist perspective to the establishment of the ideology of the market through neoclassical economics. The introductory text finishes with chapters on institutional and Keynesian economics as well as an appraisal of Modern Political Economy. A definite plus is the accessible writing style for a wider audience (potentially beyond the academic context) and its capability to break down complex economic ideas and their relationship with political ideologies.
