Coffee is traded in one of the few international markets ever subject to effective political regulation. In Open-Economy Politics, Robert Bates explores the origins, the operations, and the collapse of the International Coffee Organization, an international "government of coffee" that was formed in the 1960s. In so doing, he addresses key issues in international political economy and comparative politics, and analyzes the creation of political institutions and their impact on markets. Drawing upon field work in East Africa, Colombia, and Brazil, Bates explores the domestic sources of international politics within a unique theoretical framework that blends game theoretic and more established approaches to the study of politics. The book will appeal to those interested in international political economy, comparative politics, and the political economy of development, especially in Latin America and Africa, and to readers wanting to learn more about the economic and political realities that underlie the coffee market. It is also must reading for those interested in "the new institutionalism" and modern political economy.

One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 1997 "[The] analysis is from the perspective of new institutional economics, as the book straddles the fault lines between, on the one hand, political developments in Brazil, Colombia, and the United States and, on the other, interest groups in those countries... Bates's approach is therefore innovative... The book is beautifully produced, full of useful data... It will provoke lively debate."--Robert G. Greenhill, Economic History Review "A no-nonsense academic study of the politics of coffee."--Charles Corn, Los Angeles Times Book Review
