About the Author:

Charles W. Kegley is currently serving on the Board of Trustees of the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs. A past President of the International Studies Association, Kegley holds the title of Pearce Distinguished Professor of International Relations Emeritus at the University of South Carolina. A graduate of the American University (B.A.) and Syracuse University (Ph.D.) and a Pew Faculty Fellow at Harvard University, Kegley previously served on the faculty at Georgetown University, and has held visiting professorships at the University of Texas, Rutgers University, the People's University of China, and the Institute Universitaire de Hautes Études Internationales Et du Developpement in Geneva Switzerland. He is also a recipient of the Distinguished Scholar Award of the Foreign Policy Analysis Section of the International Studies Association. A founding partner of Kegley International, Inc. (a publishing, research, and consulting foundation), Kegley has authored more than 50 scholarly books (and over 100 articles in journals), including co-authorship with Gregory A. Raymond for Cengage of five editions of The Global Future, as well as with Eugene R. Wittkopf seven editions of American Foreign Policy: Pattern and Process.

Eugene R. Wittkopf was the R. Downs Poindexter Professor Emeritus at Louisiana State University (LSU). He also held appointments at the University of Florida and the University of North Carolina. He received his doctorate from The Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs at Syracuse University. He published more than thirty books on international politics and foreign policy and several dozen refereed articles in professional journals and chapters in books. He held offices in professional associations and served on the editorial boards of numerous profession journals. In 2002 he received the Distinguished Scholar Award of the Foreign Policy Section of the International Studies Association. Earlier, Professor Wittkopf was named the 1996 Distinguished Research Master of Arts, Humanities, and Social Studies at Louisiana State University. This is the highest award given by the LSU in recognition of faculty contributions to research and scholarship.


"One strength common to virtually all of the book's chapters is the great conceptual/theoretical detail that is presented. Otherwise include the reasonably engaging style of writing, the highlighted "controversies" (well chosen and presented), the graphics, and the photos."

"World Politics is the most current, comprehensive, and 'inviting' textbook on international relations on the market. Students will like the Controversy Boxes, Where on the World Wide Web? And the chapter on Ten Questions About Twenty-First-Century Global Prospects. Instructors will appreciate the serious thought given to Suggested Readings at the end of every chapter and the excellent References section at the end of the book."

"WORLD POLITICS is the most comprehensive international relations survey text ever written. There are many survey texts to choose from, but this one does the discipline justice at a level any college student can understand."

"WORLD POLITICS successfully integrates sophisticated theoretical treatment of analytical issues with a thorough presentation of substantive material. It is well written, and the visual material for students is well selected and organized. The essays on controversies in international relations are engaging and should force students to think about some of the major issues in international relations. The authors have updated all important pieces of information and they blend in nicely discussions of recent events."
