WORLD POLITICS: TREND AND TRANSFORMATION offers analysis of the most up-to-date data, research, and contemporary events from today's international political stage.

This 2014-2015 EDITION incorporates recent changes in leadership, the latest on the world economy, social media, international organizations, and advances in military technology, a look at the changing nuclear environment in both North Korea and Iran, an expanded discussion on human rights, an enhanced discussion of conflict between non-state actors, new data from World Development Indicators and more. Our recent partnership with the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs provides more coverage of contemporary issues and resources to explore those issues than ever before. And for the first time, all of the amazing study tools available through CourseMate come packaged with the book: chapter quizzes, videos, simulations, case study exercises, interactive timelines, International Relations NewsNow, and more. Co-author Shannon L. Blanton incorporates key concepts into the text from major theoretical perspectives to look at both historical and contemporary developments. This edition addresses topics such as war, terrorism, human rights, the environment, and international development while emphasizing an institutional approach to resolving international conflict. The authors present each issue in a thought-provoking way that encourages you to critically assess the problems, payoffs, pitfalls, and paradoxes of people's choices about the global future and the probable impact those choices will have on your life in the future.

About the Author:

Charles William Kegley is a past president of the International Studies Association, and has been serving the past two decades on the Board of Trustees of the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs. 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.

Shannon Lindsey Blanton is a professor in the Department of Government at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where she is also the inaugural dean of the UAB Honors College. She is a past vice provost for undergraduate programs, department chair and undergraduate coordinator, and has served nationally as a facilitator for leadership development in higher education. A graduate of Georgia College (B.A.), the University of Georgia (M.A.), and the University of South Carolina (Ph.D.), she has received numerous research awards and professional recognitions. She has served on a number of editorial boards, including those for four of the discipline's foremost journals: International Studies Quarterly, Foreign Policy Analysis, International Interactions, and International Studies Perspectives. She has published articles on U.S. foreign policy decision-making, with a focus on the determinants and consequences of U.S. arms transfers and foreign aid. Her work has also examined the significance of human rights concerns in global political and economic interactions.

Review:

"[WORLD POLITICS is] one of the premiere texts in IR, well-respected, with a solid thematic approach. Any student who uses it will be well-prepared for IR theory. What I like a lot is the inclusion of Chapter 12 [The Demographic and Cultural Dimensions of Globalization]. One of the key things is to be able to identify the next big, thematic area. The next thing that IR texts have to deal with is the north/south issue and the problems of globalization. Kegley/Blanton does a nice job of that in Chapter 12." - Jeff Ringer, Brigham Young University

"I enjoyed looking at the Table of Contents. The new Table of Contents is better than [the book I'm using]. It's much more focused and the sub-divisions are shorter, which is good. The writing style seems much tighter and more structured. It is crisply written." - Christopher R. Cook, University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown

"Of the many texts I have reviewed for my introductory course in IR, I have found Kegley's text to be the most complete." -Sidney T. Ellington, University of Oklahoma
