Highly acclaimed for its clear exposition and up-to-date policy discussion, Kreinin's International economics: a policy approach, 10E offers a brief, simplified yet comprehensive analysis of international economic relations. This edition will be a Cengage Advantage text and will carry a value price of $49.95 net. By providing a proper balance of theory, policy, institutional, and empirical materials, the text exposes students to an excellent foundation. Kreinin's text is also considered the best existing International textbook for courses with an emphasis on policy issues. Written for students with only one or two previous courses in the principles of economics, the book is designed primarily for a one- or two-term undergraduate sequence in international economics. However, it also fits nicely into many MBA and international relations courses. Part One of the book addresses international trade and commercial policy, while Part Two is devoted to international financial relations. The two Parts are interchangeable and may be studied in either order.
