Summary

The most comprehensive text on the market, WORLD POLITICS: TREND AND TRANSFORMATION offers analysis of the most up-to-date data, research, and contemporary events from today's international political stage. Students will understand what is happening today....and why. With new co-author Shannon L. Blanton, the text incorporates key concepts from major theoretical perspectives to look at both historical and contemporary developments. It 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 students 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 students in the future.
