Booknews
This college text by Papp (U. System of Georgia) explores the complexities of modern international relations. Coverage includes who the international actors are and their interests and objectives; how their interactions change the international system of policies; how developed and developing states perceive themselves; the instruments and tools used to implement policies and undertake actions; problems created and confronted by the actors in their interactions; and prospects for the 21st century. The sixth edition includes updated data and examples; material on the impact of information and communication technologies; expanded discussions on foreign policy decision-making, human rights, health issues, and environmental issues; the addition of website references to each chapter; and the addition of key term definitions to the end of each chapter.
