The leading text in international relations is getting even better. Thoroughly revised for 2011-2012, WORLD POLITICS: TREND AND TRANSFORMATION presents the most comprehensive coverage of any text. 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. Authors Charles W. Kegley and 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.

"The text is accessible to both teachers and students (including those outside political science, broadly conceived). Students have always told me the book has enhanced their understanding of global issues. The language is clear, it touches on most of the important issues in international relations, and the organization of the text makes teaching fun."-- Bossman Asare, Graceland University
"The author does an excellent job of defining concepts and terms that are important to the study of international relations and world politics. The chapters of the textbook are organized in a logical way that is consistent with the conventional structure of IR courses in the U.S."-- John Tuman, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
"...It provides extensive discussion of the main concepts and theories of international relations without being too easy or simplistic. It offers critical analysis of world events and illuminates on pressing new issues in world politics."-- Dr. Cristian A. Harris, North Georgia College and State University
