 This core text is the first to provide a much-needed interdisciplinary approach to international studies. The authors include a geographer, a historian, a political scientist, and an anthropologist. Emphasizing the interconnected nature of these disciplines, the authors detail the methodologies and subject matter of each to provide a fuller understanding of the world. Applying these discipline lenses to regional chapters, the authors examine issues facing these regions and the global community. Case studies give readers a closer look at issues such as civil war and national identity. This disciplinary and regional combination provides an indispensable, cohesive framework for understanding global issues 

The second edition includes:·         Extensive updates throughout to reflect important events over the past four years, including the global financial crisis·         Two chapters on Asia, instead of one, with new coverage of South Asia·         Two new global issues chapters, one on the Sudan and one on global population·         An entirely new conclusion emphasizing the integration of the disciplines and their application

Review:

“A seminal work of simply outstanding scholarship, International Studies is strongly recommended for professional, governmental, and academic library ... reference collections and supplemental reading lists.” —Bookwatch 

“A powerful assessment perfect for any classroom discussion.” —The Midwest Book Review

 Praise for the Previous Edition: “Everyone agrees that international studies should be interdisciplinary, but almost no one knows how to teach that on their own. An innovative collaboration between professors of anthropology, economics, geography, history and political science, this book is fundamentally driven by the importance of interdisciplinary work. The combination of its overview chapters on all five of these disciplines as well as its comprehensive regional approach and contemporary focus on specific global issues should appeal to anyone teaching an introduction to international studies course.” —Scott Pegg, Director of the International Studies Program, IUPUI
