This student-friendly introduction to Global Studies provides readers with an analytical framework that moves beyond academic debates about the definition of globalization. The material is organized around substantive themes that are both accessible to students, and relevant to what is going on in the world today.

The author begins by highlighting the deep historical interconnections between political, economic, and social forces that shape our world today. The readings then focus on pressing, real-world issues such as global inequality, neo-imperialism, racism, environmental degradation, and global women's movements. The final section of the book explores critical perspectives on sustainable development, human rights, and global governance. Throughout the text abstract ideas are grounded in concrete, highly-relatable examples. Main points and key concepts are clearly listed to enhance review and comprehension.

Integrated Perspectives in Global Studies can be used in courses on political science, international relations, and globalization. The book continually and explicitly connects the dots, making it possible for students to easily understand complex issues and make the connections between them.

Philip C. McCarty, Ph.D. is an award-winning lecturer in Global and International Studies, and the Co-Director of the Australia Travel Studies Program at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Dr. McCarty's degrees in Sociology and Anthropology inform his distinct historical and interdisciplinary approach, and his wide-ranging teaching experience emphasizes a student-friendly approach to complex global issues.
