'International Institutions in the New Global Economy is a comprehensive collection of scholarship on international economic institutions. The articles in this compendium cover a wide range of perspectives, and a wealth of empirical applications. Together they provide a wide-ranging and far-reaching set of analyses of international economic institutions. The collection will be extremely useful to all scholars of international politics and economics.'- Jeffry A. Frieden, Harvard University, USInternational institutions and formal international organizations lie at the heart of the new global economy. International economic interactions occur within a framework of norms, rules and organizations, and an appreciation of this institutionalization is essential for understanding the functioning of the new global economy. The growth of the institutional framework has attracted extensive attention from political scientists, who in recent years have developed more nuanced theories of the international organizations' form, function and effects, and have begun to subject these theories to systematic empirical scrutiny. For this significant collection Lisa Martin has brought together the most important articles, published since 1982, on the role of institutions in the global economy and has provided a scholarly new introduction which gives a comprehensive overview of the subject.
