This website provides easy access to resources for readers who want to understand the modern world.

Its perspective is Geopolitical Economy, which offers an integrated understanding of the world economy’s interaction with nation states, drawing especially on the concept of Combined and Uneven Development.

The site features scholarly papers, books, videos, podcasts, slideshows and other materials that contribute to this perspective, from a variety of authors.

This site is ‘curated’; everything on it is available elsewhere and it contains no original material. Our aim is to provide a convenient way to access key resources without the clutter that can accompany traditional blogs. At the end of each entry you will find clickable links to the original material, which will open in a new tab in your browser.

The site is under construction. We welcome suggestions and contributions which can be sent using the contact form, but at this stage the site is not open to public comments. We also welcome suggested contributions; bear in mind that since we only reproduce existing materials, there is no peer review process and our selection of materials aims principally to ensure our readers are informed.
