Overview

Introduction to Global Politics, Second Edition, brings together an expert team of international scholars to provide students with a current, engaging, and non-U.S. perspective on global politics. It shows students how to analyze global political events using theoretical approaches—both mainstream and alternative—and emphasizes non-state actors more than other textbooks.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Introduction to Global Politics, Second Edition, is an excellent introductory text that allows students to recognize the value of IR theories while giving them a very well-structured and superbly researched overview to the most pressing issues confronting global politics. By far outshines the competition."—Jeannie Grussendorf, Georgia State University

"The book's greatest strength is its truly global perspective. Globalization is the underlying theme, based on which politics, economics, and identity issues are analyzed. I would definitely recommend this text, particularly because it has this global perspective and a price advantage over its main competitors."—Stefan Fritsch, Bowling Green State University

"This text nicely melds the strengths of various top scholars into a very coherent work."—Robert E. Williams, Pepperdine University

"This book offers a deeper discussion of IR theories, non-traditional notions of security, and non-state actors in IR than most competitors."—Lawrence P. Markowitz, Rowan University
