REVEL for How the World Works: A Brief Survey of International Relations -- Access Card / Edition 3 available in Other Format
- Pub. Date:
REVEL™ for How the World Works: A Brief Survey of International Relations provides the detailed, micro-level knowledge students need to understand world politics, harnessing students’ curiosity about global current events. Author Russell Bova covers the continuing swirl of events that dominate world politics in our present — from the Arab Spring, to the Russian invasion of Crimea, to the rise of ISIS, to the Ebola crisis in West Africa. REVEL for the Third Edition makes improvements in general while maintaining its core mission: to tap into students’ interest in current events and help each student build a conceptual and theoretical sophistication that remains when these current events become a part of history. REVEL for How the World Works challenges students to question their assumptions about the world and what they may think they already know about international relations. Overall, it makes it clear that even scholars and politicians disagree about the world’s political and economic interactions, and makes a point to introduce students to all paradigms — encouraging them to form their own opinions about how the world works.
