The best variety of readings―from both classic and contemporary sources including academic works, news articles, and government documents

The best coverage of alternative theories―going beyond realism, liberalism, and constructivism to feminist, Marxist, and contemporary theories

Moving beyond the almost exclusively liberal and realist readings included in other anthologies, Introduction to Global Politics: A Reader provides a better balance of canonical essays and more recent scholarship representing contemporary work in the constructivist, feminist, Marxist, and postmodern traditions. Renowned contributors include Paul Krugman on what undergraduates need to know about international trade; Kenneth N. Waltz on the relevance of realism after the Cold War; Thomas Homer-Dixon on eco-terrorism; and Cynthia Enloe on Abu Ghraib. Other experts address such compelling topics as landmines, global hunger, jihad, torture, and cyber-terrorism. This unique volume also presents genuine non-Western voices in the field, including Choong Yong Ahn on the impact of the 2008 global financial crisis in Asia and Navnita Chadha Behera on re-imagining IR in India.

Introduction to Global Politics is enhanced by numerous pedagogical features including:

* Chapter introductions that provide historical overviews of major issues, coverage of key academic debates, and insightful questions to guide students in their reading

* Article introductions discussing relevant issues and highlighting key terms

* Discussion questions following each section
* An extensive glossary of terms that are integral to the study of IR

Ideal for courses in IR, global studies, and world politics, Introduction to Global Politics: A Reader offers a robust and flexible set of readings on both theories and issues. It also helps students to make explicit connections between academic thinking and the "real world" of international events, problems, and issues.
