The King reader is a collection of articles on international economics by leading economists drawn from various scholarly sources (e.g., Foreign Affairs, Current Issues in Economics and Finance, Finance and Development, Federal Reserve Publications, the Journal of Economic Perspectives). Previously known as International Economics and International Economic Policy, the new title is briefer and yet more descriptive, since the term globalization has been added to reflect the content of the book, which is also used in courses devoted to globalization, particularly the economic aspects of globalization. The Fifth Edition focuses on real debates within the discipline of economics and political economy, not on phony "pro-cons" debates which often obscure the real issues. The reader continues to be unique as the most relevant in today's market.

Now retired, Philip King was Professor of Quantitative Methods and Psychology at Hawaii Pacific University.
