Summary

The text reviews and analyzes the ways in which the world has been politically transformed since the end of the Cold War (1991). Various and competing political philosophies, democratic and non-democratic forms of government, and the impact of political culture are considered. The role of the United States in the current constellation of international politics is carefully examined throughout the chapters. Issues such as changing demographies, the evolving global economy, and the increasing dangers posed by terrorism are also evaluated.
