Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"'...analytically well organized, defining the dominant issues of world politics by their extent or scope, their urgency or intensity, their salience or visibility, and their centrality or location...The essays devoted to these issues have all benefited from close editorial control and are admirably focused, explaining the historical background to how the issue got on the international agenda, and how it has been managed or mismanaged internationally since the end of the Cold War."--James Mayall, Review of International Studies

A textbook that responds to the modularization of undergraduate programs in Britain and elsewhere in Europe by attempting to appeal to both students beginning a specialty study in world politics, but also those sampling the field who will wander off after one course.
