Suggested Reading List

The reading list below is comprised of books which deal with subjects in a way that allows an understanding of political economy from a larger perspective.   The term  Political Economy refers to the organization of society, i.e. the rules which govern personal conduct and the way which  individual rights are secured on one hand, and on the other hand, it refers to the activities of families and other groups to secure their existence and their procreation.  Thus, the study of Political Economy draws upon the discipline of Sociology, Political Science, Anthropology, Psychology, History, Economics (study of production and markets), Law, Human Geography, Ecology, International Relations and Cultural studies.

The book list and resources suggested by the Economic Club of San Francisco are chosen to provide for the reader a logical and coherent picture of Political Economy which relates to every day reality.
