The leading text in international relations is getting even better. Thoroughly revised and reorganized for the twelfth edition, WORLD POLITICS: TREND AND TRANSFORMATION presents the most comprehensive coverage of any text, and this annual update provides the most recent demographic and statistical information available for the course. Using key concepts from major theoretical traditions to analyze both historical and contemporary developments in international relations, WORLD POLITICS addresses topics such as war, terrorism, human rights, the environment, and international development while emphasizing an institutional approach to resolving international conflict. Author Charles W. Kegley and new coauthor Shannon L. Blanton present each issue in a thought-provoking yet accessible way that prepares you to critically assess the problems, payoffs, pitfalls, and paradoxes of people's collective choices about the global future and the probable impact those choices will have on your life.
