As the best selling text in International Relations, WORLD POLITICS: TREND AND TRANSFORMATION is a trusted balance in coverage and approach unmatched by any other text for the course. Analyzing both historical and contemporary trends and developments, utilizing theoretical concepts, and weaving in the interactions of global actors, WORLD POLITICS: TREND AND TRANSFORMATION resists the temptation to overly simplify world politics but presents the material in a thought-provoking yet accessible manner. The major theories of realism and liberalism frame the dynamics of international relations in this text; however, newly advanced theories such as constructivism are also explored. In addition, major actors and current issues such as global welfare, international economics, ecology, and the environment are covered, as well as issues of global conflict, including the changing face of terrorism, national security, warfare, and approaches to peace. Carefully and meticulously revised in this Ninth Edition to reflect global changes and developments and the emergence of new issues on the global agenda, WORLD POLITICS: TREND AND TRANSFORMATION prepares the student to discuss the unfolding topics in world affairs and sensitizes them to their need as world citizens to think more critically about the moral implications of global circumstances and policies designed to alleviate human suffering.
