Summary

World Politics in a New Era, Fourth Edition, uses the themes of globalization/fragmentation and conflict vs. cooperation as the context for all discussions in the text, allowing students to see the intersection of the predominant theories in international relations at all levels ofanalysis-individual, domestic, and systemic. This unique methodology provides a comprehensive treatment of international relations and a thorough foundation in the historical context of the discipline, its theories, and its contemporary issues.The text introduces the predominant theories of international relations early, and refers to them throughout the remainder of the book -- in both the main text and the ''At a Glance'' features in each chapter. In addition, ''Spotlight'' articles in every chapter highlight hot-button issues such asorganized crime, human trafficking, the Green Revolution, WMDs, and more. ''What Would You Do?'' sections present actual situations and events in world politics, then ask students to develop a strategic approach to solving that issue based on principles and theories put forth in the text.Including a new chapter on non-European history, World Politics in a New Era, Fourth Edition, is ideal for introductory courses in international relations.
