Traditional studies of world problems emphasize the struggle for power between states as they search for national security. But increasing economic and ecological interdependence have transformed the world political agenda, creating the need for new tools to explain the changing reality of global politics. Addressing interrelated global problems, this text explores the threats and the opportunties posed by the changing world order. This fourth edition provides new information on economic and security issues, as well as updated case studies with current figures. The book retains its practical bent, conveying how global politics affects the quality and content of people's lives.
