This core text is the first to provide a much-needed interdisciplinary approach to international studies. Emphasizing the interconnected nature of history, geography, anthropology, economics, and political science, International Studies details the methodologies and subject matter of each discipline then applies these discipline lenses to seven regions: Europe; East Asia and the Pacific; South and Central Asia; Africa; the Middle East; Latin America; and North America. This disciplinary and regional combination provides an indispensable, cohesive framework for understanding global issues.

The third edition includes:
· A new chapter on North America
· Three new global issues chapters: The Right to Protect, New Global Players in the 21st Century, and The Arab Uprisings

Review:

Praise for the third edition:

"An ideal introduction to humanities and social science views of the world and the international issues that confront us."
Heidi Hobbs, North Carolina State University

"There are numerous international politics books but this is the only one that I have found that really focuses on international studies in a distinct manner. What is particularly important is the first five chapters that help define the disciplines from which International Studies draws. It also does an admirable job of touring students throughout the world. Many of my students cannot believe how much territory we have covered by the end of the semester."
Christopher Scholl, California State University, Channel Islands

"International Studies: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Global Issues stands out as a major contribution to the methodology of International Studies . . . This book should be compulsory reading for all researchers and students in International Studies."
Journal of the Historical Society of Nigeria

Praise for prior editions:

"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 International Studies Program, IUPUI

"Finally! A book that gives me the courage to teach a genuinely interdisciplinary international studies course. Cross cutting disciplinary, geographic and policy issues, International Studies draws upon the authors' considerable experience to provide a holistic approach to analyzing the international arena. This book will be successful as a core text for an introductory class or as an addition to an upper level international studies course, ensuring that students appreciate the multiple lenses critical to understanding global problems."
Patrice Franko, Colby College
