"Alfred Eckes provides a broad yet detailed perspective of the economic, commercial and geo political trends which have defined global markets and policies since the 1980s. Spanning developed, transitional and emerging economies, Eckes presents for academics, specialists and the general public a comprehensive analysis and prognosis of complex global shifts." -Irene Finel-Honigman, Columbia University "For expert and student alike, The Contemporary Global Economy is an approachable yet sophisticated treatment of the tumultuous global economy's past third of a century. Lively writing complements broad coverage of every important person, issue, and event that have shaped our times. Long the authority in international economic history, Eckes has produced a tour de force that should be included in any library and course." -Thomas Zeiler, University of Colorado at Boulder
