Offering a truly global approach to international relations,Introduction to Global Politics,Brief Edition, brings together an expert team of international scholars to provide students with a current, engaging, and non-U.S. perspective on global politics. A more concise version of Lamy et al.:Introduction to Global Politics,this brief edition condenses the longer volume's coverage (making the content more manageable by reducing it from fourteen to ten chapters) and offers an even stronger pedagogical program. Introduction to Global Politics,Brief Edition, includes extensive treatment of globalization throughout; integrates non-U.S. perspectives from more than twenty scholars around the world; and emphasizes non-state actors more than other textbooks, especially in Chapters 6 and 7. Its unique organization (chapters only, no parts) facilitates a global approach by enabling maximum teaching flexibility. Pedagogical features and critical-thinking questions take the global approach one step further by encouraging students to develop their own informed worldviews. FEATURES: * A single-chapter theory primer (Chapter 3)succinctly introduces students to the predominant theoretical approaches in international relations. * "Theory in Practice"boxes demonstrate how theories in global politics relate to the real world by asking students to examine various scenarios using different theoretical lenses. Each box ends with discussion questions that prompt students to apply what they've learned. * "Case Study"boxes use real-world events to show theories and concepts in action, helping students to make a policy decision or other type of recommendation. Each feature ends with thought-provoking discussion questions. * "What's Your Worldview?"questions in the margins encourage students to think critically about issues and to develop their own, more informed worldviews using the theories discussed in the book. * "Thinking About Global Politics"boxes at the end of every chapter give students the opportunity to apply their knowledge to in-depth activities dealing with real-world political issues.
