9780199965625: World Politics in a New Era

A uniquely in-depth treatment of the field, World Politics in a New Era, Sixth Edition, features extensive historical coverage that ranges from the Peace of Westphalia in 1648 to the present, offering students the best context to fully comprehend the modern political stage. It focuses on levels of analysis (systemic, domestic, and individual) in relation to major IR theories (realism, liberalism, and constructivism) and gives students the analytical tools to apply the theories to current issues. The authors integrate coverage of the competing threads of globalization and fragmentation throughout, examining how they tangle and weave through studies of global politics, economics, and culture.

FEATURES

"At a Glance" text boxes apply the theories and levels of analysis--individual, domestic, and systemic--to each chapter's theme

"What Would You Do?" boxes profile real-life events, asking students to play the role of a world leader/decision maker and propose a solution that takes into account the many complexities of world politics

"Spotlight" features in every chapter highlight interesting people, places, and situations; discuss important international events and colorful personalities in greater depth; or focus on specific facets of complex conflicts or theories
