International studies is an interdisciplinary field that is rapidly gaining in popularity. Drawing from many well-established disciplines such as political science, geography, sociology, and economics, it examines and evaluates the many issues that affect the global population.
Introduction to International Studies offers a concise introduction to the fields of international studies and international development, as well as many of the major topical issues of interest to students. It might be assumed that the author of a book on international studies would focus exclusively on governance, economics, conflict resolution, and war, but Orend has been careful to expand his coverage to include such topics as trade, culture, health, and human rights.
Theoretical concepts act as the foundation for understanding the real-life examples presented in the form of case studies from various disciplines. Students will learn to apply theory to the quickly changing global world and will finish this text ready to take on more advanced training in international studies.

He has experience working in intellectual property law and is also the president of LIB Publishing Inc., a start-up fiction press.

Review:

"No other book on the market that addresses international studies this way. . . . It has a very clear format and brings in the interdisciplinary element of international studies to the forefront."

--Dr. Logan Masilamani, Department of Political Science, Simon Fraser University

"Introduction to International Studies has a perfect pitch for the undergraduate - completely attuned to a digital world while reflecting a profound knowledge of history and philosophy and the scholarly debates in the field of international relations."

--John English, Distinguished professor Emeritus, Department of History, University of Waterloo

"Brian Orend's book does justice to the daunting scope and complexity of international studies without compromising substance and critical reflection. Though billed as an introduction, his work presents the fascinating features and amazing transformations of our globalized world with mastery
and clarity so as to inspire genuine interest and active engagement. Adeptly weaving historical and conceptual backgrounds with contemporary debates and current events, Orend offers novices and experts alike a treasure trove of refreshing insights."

--Thomas Pogge, Leitner Professor of Philosophy and International Affairs, Yale University
