9780742566576: Global Politics as if People Mattered (New Millennium Books in International Studies)

What would international relations look like if our theories and analyses began with individuals, families, and communities instead of executives, nation-states, and militaries? After all, it is people who make up cities, states, and corporations, and it is their beliefs and behaviors that explain why some parts of the world seem so peaceful while others appear so violent, why some societies are so rich while others are so poor.

Now in a fully updated and revised edition, this unique text on contemporary global politics begins with people, treating them as "social individuals" with free will and human agency even as they are limited and disciplined by rules and rulers. Offering a fresh approach to global politics, this dynamic author team trades perspectives with each other and with such eminent social theorists as Michel Foucault and Hannah Arendt to develop their resonant theme.

Using practical examples as well as theory, the authors show students how they can take charge of their lives and the politics that affect them, even in the context of a vast global economy and impersonal international forces that sometimes seem out of control. Filled with idealism, yet firmly grounded in current realities, Global Politics as if People Mattered is a fresh take on the proper place and potential of individuals in world politics—front and center, actively engaged in a way of life that is as politically personal as it is politically powerful. This distinctive text, a perfect reading for lower-division politics courses, helps students to carve out their own political space in the contemporary global order.

Ronnie D. Lipschutz is professor of politics at the University of California at Santa Cruz.

Review:

The authors masterfully weave international relations, political theory, history, sociology, gender studies, and economics into a holistic understanding of global politics. My students in Intro to IR found the first edition challenging, compelling, and empowering. (Mary K. Meyer McAleese, Eckerd College)

The people-centered approach is very helpful, putting global politics in a more holistic context for students. (Kelly Rae Kraemer, College of St. Benedict/St. John's University)
