Introduction to Global Politics

posted on 2023-06-07, 17:41 authored by Patricia Owens, S Lamy, S Smith, J Baylis
The first U.S. textbook to offer students a truly global approach, Introduction to Global Politics brings together an expert team of international scholars who provide a current, engaging, non-U.S. perspective on international relations. The authors and editors help students to identify patterns, to apply theories, and to see "the whole chessboard" of global politics. The book's unique organization facilitates this global approach by dividing typical course coverage into several core areas of study--"Foundations," "Theories," "Actors," and "Issues"--allowing not only for maximum teaching flexibility but also for more thoughtful classroom discussions on various theories, transnational actors, and timely global issues. Adding interesting features and critical thinking questions throughout each chapter, the authors take the global approach one step further, encouraging students to develop their own informed worldviews.
