Alan Glanville has added to 'Economics from a Global Perspective' with two new volumes, one of data response questions and one of multiple-- choice questions. The main text has been revised.

These publications are aimed at International Baccalaureate teachers and students and the strength.of Glanville is that he is the only author currently addressing the IB syllabus. Teachers and students new to the IB can read the book, confident that they will meet the course requirements, and for teachers at remote schools unable to attend IB workshops, this book comes into its own. Glanville is an ex deputy-chief examiner with a long history of involvement with the IB.

The downside of addressing only IB students is that the small print runs do not make it a viable text for mainstream publishers. Many faults in the text are attributable to the lack of an editor and publisher other than Mr. Glanville, who has almost single-handedly completed an epic task.

The great advantage of this text is that it speaks to international students. The language used is stripped of English idiom, which is the bane of many teachers at international schools. (They often spend more time explaining arcane English phrases than teaching economic concepts). Examples and explanations are drawn from sources throughout the world, unlike much of the case study material in A level or American high school texts, which is far too narrow for IB students. However, the author slips in and out of the familiar first person and the third person, and this is distracting. The over-use of the dash in punctuation might be improved in subsequent editions, as it does not serve as a good model for second language students in particular.

There are some major drawbacks. The coverage of topics is uneven: students wishing to write essays on monopoly, for example, will struggle to reach top grades. There is very little on actual anti-monopoly legislation, contestable markets or Schumpeter. …
