To prepare for an increasingly globalized world, Chernotsky and Hobbs′ new introductory text Crossing Borders offers a clear, compelling framework for understanding the global forces that both unite and separate world citizens. With smart features designed to promote critical thinking, the book invites students to envision the future roles they might play on the international stage and guides them in developing the intercultural competencies they need to get there. Looking at types of "borders"―geographical, political, economic, social, and cultural―and then delving into extended case study chapters to explore the specific challenges they pose, the authors help students see how these borders contribute to our understanding of the world.

Harry I. Chernotsky is chair of the Department of Global, International and Area Studies and professor of political science at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He has a PhD in political science from Rutgers University.Review:
Crossing Borders provides students with a wide area of coverage on different contemporary global problems, promotes critical thinking, and offers various perspectives to consider. I would recommend to faculty in political science - especially the ones teaching global issues. Its strengths include the wide area of coverage, writing style, and engaging features for students. -- Pajo Bora Crossing Borders is the best textbook available for International Studies courses. It tackles complex global issues from a multidisciplinary perspective, doing so in a way that is both accessible and engaging for students. Most importantly, students come away with an understanding of how those issues impact their day-to-day lives, as well as how they can participate in the increasingly interconnected world around them as global citizens. -- Michael Makara Crossing Borders is a very user-friendly text that is full of pressing global issues and current 21st century events highlighting the discipline of International Studies and key issues and challenges in the global arena from multiple perspectives. It highlights the relationship of history to the modern, global political economy and international relations therein. Further, this textbook pushes students to engage with the material and understand their position within this world calling for their pursuit of becoming a global citizen. -- Lesley Daspit
