Overview

How might we see world affairs if we started with people, families, and communities instead of presidents, governments, and militaries? After all, it is people who make up cities, states, and corporations, and it is their beliefs and behaviors that explain why some parts of the world seem so peaceful while others appear so violent, why some societies are so rich while others are so poor. This unique look at contemporary global politics begins with people, treating them as 'social individuals' with free will and human agency even as they are limited and disciplined by rules and rulers. Placing people in the center of their analysis instead of states, this dynamic team of authors trades perspectives with each other and with such eminent social theorists as Michel Foucault and Hannah Arendt to develop their resonant theme.
