Configuring the World

A Critical Political Economy Approach

Updates

When the book was completed, we employed the latest data-sets available. This page indicates where they can be found and, where more recent data is available, where to locate it. In many of the maps we have chosen 2011 data. This was to keep a consistent series linking with the GDP ppp data which, if it is ever accurate, is only likely to be so in the year for  which the original  calculation was made.
