18 January 2011 Economics 181 Roland-Holst 4 Textbook and Study Guide • Paul Krugman and Maurice Obstfeld (KO), International Economics: Theory and Policy, Addison-Wesley, Eighth Edition. • Although only the textbook is required, the study guide is recommended. The Study Guide, written by Linda Goldberg and Michael Klein, contains sample problems for each chapter and is quite useful as a guide for exams. Although the study guide was written to accompany an earlier version of KO, it is still very useful.
