9780199393886: Introduction to Global Politics

Introduction to Global Politics, Third 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.

PEDAGOGICAL FEATURES

* "Thinking about Global Politics" boxes at the end of each chapter give students the opportunity to develop their critical-thinking skills and apply their knowledge to in-depth activities dealing with real-world issues

* "Theory in Practice" essays with discussion questions examine real-world scenarios using a variety of theoretical lenses

* "Engaging with the World" boxes suggest ways that students can get involved with activist organizations

* "Case Study" essays with discussion questions delve into timely moments from world events, providing students with more in-depth analyses of specific topics

* "What's Your Worldview?" critical-thinking questions challenge students to develop their own, more well-informed ideas about global actors and issues

* Additional study aids--including a running glossary, a comprehensive glossary, review questions at the end of each chapter, and margin charts--help students better comprehend the material and prepare for tests

Review:


"I would absolutely adopt the new edition of Introduction to Global Politics for my course. It is a strong and comprehensive text that covers the major features of IR/global politics while also bringing in the more specific nuances that keep politics interesting."--Jennifer Bloxom, Colorado State University


"This is one of the most understandable and accessible political science texts that I have read."--Winn W. Wasson, University of Wisconsin


"What I like, besides the helpful online resources and the CNN videos, is the tone of the writing. It is quite close to conversational, which I think is a great help for students."--Veronica Ward, Utah State University


"The writing is accessible and understandable to contemporary IR students, whether majors or not. This is especially important for the large number of online courses that are offered currently."--Paul A. Mego, University of Memphis
