The world is becoming an ever smaller place--through globalization, finance and economics, technology, media, and the many global issues that transcend borders. As a result, undergraduates studying Global Politics and International Relations need a more integrated, applied, and practical approach for making sense of the world around them. In Global Politics: Applying Theory to a Complex World, authors Mark Boyer, Natalie Hudson, and Michael Butler have developed an approach to the subject that integrates historical context where necessary in the discussion of global issues and integrates the mainstream theoretical approaches within every chapter to provide students a rich and meaningful way to understand and critically analyze what is happening in the world today.

Global Politics covers all of the standard topics in the undergraduate level IR/Global Politics course, and also provides more robust coverage of global ecology; gender and race; the different security challenges of our day that go beyond armed conflict; IPE coverage that highlights the divergent paths of the Global North and South; and the growing reliance upon international law, international organizations, and global and regional governance. Utilizing a familiar organization and emphasis of topics, the authors have developed a compelling narrative and features to captivate students who are both "worldly" and "na´ve" at the same time.
