Example text

In the words of Stephen Krasner, another of the American school's earliest stars: "International political economy is deeply embedded in the standard methodology of the social sciences which, stripped to its bare bones, simply means stating a proposition and testing it against external evidence" (Krasner 1996: 108-109). It was not always this way. Among the pioneers of the field in the United States, back in the 1970s and 1980s - including in particular Keohane, Gilpin, Katzenstein, and Krasner - more informal methods predominated.

It was not always this way. Among the pioneers of the field in the United States, back in the 1970s and 1980s - including in particular Keohane, Gilpin, Katzenstein, and Krasner - more informal methods predominated. In my earlier Intellectual History, I referred to these extraordinary thinkers as the First Generation of IPE in the United States. Relying mainly on qualitative analysis, Keohane and his colleague Joseph Nye {Keohane and Nye 1977) taught us to think intuitively in terms of a world economy characterized by multiple channels of communications, an absence of hierarchy among issues, and a diminished role for military force - what they called "complex interdependence" - while Gilpin, with his three "models," helped us to organize our theorizing for ready comparison and contrast.

However, with only rare exceptions, they all seem to agree that something truly historic is happening. An illustrative collection of essays offering a diversity of perspectives on the globalization phenomenon is provided by Richard Appelbaum and William Robinson (2005). In the orthodox American school, by contrast, there is considerably more skepticism. " That something significant may be going on in the world is acknowledged. Indeed, it is hard to miss the degree to which interdependence among national economies has spread and accelerated in the current era.
