Written in clear and accessible prose, GLOBAL POLITICS discusses the major theories of international relations and provides users with the historical background to understand global politics. This new edition is a thorough revision and reflects the latest developments in world events and the study of international relations. The book is organized into five parts: theory and history, states and foreign policy, security relations, economic relations, and global challenges. It focuses on today's most urgent issues, such as international conflict, economic alliances, and terrorism and global security. A theoretical chapter on global politics covers six major perspectives on international relations and clearly explains the premise and significance of each theory.

"I find the Ray and Kaarbo book an excellent resource and textbook for basic introductory international relations courses...I find the mixture of history and theory in the book as just about right. The book is comprehensive in its approach to the field leaving virtually no stone unturned in its use of research in the field and integrating that research into the text." Daniel Master, University of North Carolina Wilmington
"The chapters on security relations are excellent. I think these are the best topics I've seen on security in an intro IR text in 10 years of teaching."Christopher M. Sprecher, Texas A&M University
