JADMAG Issue 4.2 "What is Political Economy?"
What is Political Economy?
Edited by Bassam Haddad, Omar Dahi, Ziad Abu-Rish, Joel Beinin & Sherene Seikaly
This issue of JadMag is the first of a series on the Political Economy of the Middle East. Drawn from lectures presented at the Political Economy Project’s founding workshop, the authors in this issue seek to define and interrogate the field of political economy and address how they actually “do” political economy. While authors agree on the interdisciplinary study of political economy as well as the basic tenets of the Marxist tradition, they nevertheless present various perspectives.
