Shawn C. Smallman and Kimberley Brown's popular introductory textbook for undergraduates in international and global studies is now released in a substantially revised and updated third edition. Encompassing the latest scholarship in what has become a markedly interdisciplinary endeavor and an increasingly chosen undergraduate major, the book introduces key concepts, themes, and issues and then examines each in lively chapters on essential topics, including the history of globalization; economic, political, and cultural globalization; security, energy, and development; health; agriculture and food; and the environment. Within these topics the authors explore such diverse and pressing subjects as commodity chains, labor (including present-day slavery), pandemics, human rights, and multinational corporations and the connections among them. This textbook, used successfully in both traditional and online courses, provides the newest and most crucial information needed for understanding our rapidly changing world.

New to this edition:
*Close to 50% new material
*New illustrations, maps, and tables
*New and expanded emphases on political and economic globalization and populism; health; climate change, and development
*Extensively revised exercises and activities
*New resume-writing exercise in careers chapter
*Thoroughly revised online teacher's manual

From the Publisher

As a citizen, you will face complex global issues, from trade to war, commanding your attention and calling for you to make decisions. One goal of this text is to help you critically reflect on global issues and identify the contexts where your loyalty, responsibility, and connection to others will make a difference. . . . A global perspective changes not just what you think but what you do."—from the introduction
