Overview

Offering a truly global approach to international relations, Introduction to Global Politics, Brief Second Edition, brings together an expert team of international scholars to provide students with a current, engaging, and non-US perspective on global politics. A more concise version of Lamy et al.: Introduction to Global Politics, Second Edition, this brief edition condenses the longer volume's coverage from fourteen to ten chapters, making the content more manageable.

The text includes extensive treatment of globalization throughout; integrates non-US perspectives from more than twenty global scholars; and emphasizes nonstate actors more than other textbooks. Pedagogical features and critical-thinking questions take the global approach one step further by encouraging students to develop their own informed worldview.

PEDAGOGICAL FEATURES

* A primer on theory in a single chapter (Chapter 3) succinctly introduces students to the predominant theoretical approaches in international relations

* "Theory in Practice" boxes demonstrate how theories in global politics relate to the real world by asking students to examine various scenarios using different theoretical lenses

* "Case Study" boxes use real-world events to show theories and concepts in action, helping students make policy decisions or other types of recommendations

* "What's Your Worldview?" questions in the margins encourage students to think critically about issues, provide ideas for term paper topics, and help students to develop their own, more informed worldview

* "Thinking About Global Politics" boxes at the end of every chapter give students the opportunity to develop their critical-thinking skills and apply their knowledge to in-depth activities dealing with real-world political issues

* Additional study aids—including key terms, a comprehensive glossary, review questions at the end of each chapter, and margin charts that reinforce testable content—help students to better comprehend the material and prepare for tests

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Introduction to Global Politics, Brief Edition, Second Edition, is an accessible introductory text that, unlike many of its peers, targets the student over seeking to impress an instructor making textbook decisions. It covers all the major issues in IR and consistently situates those in a globalized context, but does so by showing how theories and paradigms fit within, and sometimes directly emanate from, modern international history."—Jacob Shively, Indiana University

"Logically organized, well written, and accessible; thorough, yet brief enough to supplement and still fit within a fifteen-week semester."—Eric A. Heinze, University of Oklahoma
