Format: Paperback
I am a part intl relations person but more oriented toward the finance/macroeco type of study and this book is really good for someone who wants to study a certain period in a country - Japan - 1980's for example, the book will give you a thorough before-after scenario of all macro economic, socio economic, political indicators to lead you to why an event took place. They are much clearer about the 'economic' and 'finance' aspects than most other IR books that end up telling you everything surrounding an issue, the kind that dont explain "speculative attacks" or "swaps" or "forign exchange market intervention".

I didnt end up using this for my class but I like reading a case study once in a while!

Using this book for an unusual class. Not a lot out there to choose from. It's OK.
