From the Back Cover:

Globalization and its consequences represent one of the most urgent and complex challenges of the twenty-first century. An Introduction to Global Studies presents students with the essential information necessary for an understanding of the complex set of interconnected issues confronting today’s globalized world.

In addition to exploring competing conceptions of globalization, the book reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the field of global studies, with coverage of such topics as the nation-state system, international organizations, human rights, the global environment, population and consumption, infectious diseases, gender, global media, war, conflict, and peace. A variety of enhanced features throughout the text help illustrate the themes presented and stimulate thinking about the topics addressed. Each chapter also contains a listing of further research ideas, academic resources on selected topics, and specific real-world examples.

Drawing on insights from a broad range of disciplines across the social sciences, An Introduction to Global Studies provides readers with a firm and integrated knowledge base to help them gain a better understanding of the multifaceted issues confronting our complex and rapidly changing world.
