Written in a clear, accessible style that speaks to students with a wide range of backgrounds and abilities, this textbook provides a set of concepts and analytic tools to help them understand contemporary events and emerging global trends. Every chapter contains thought-provoking case studies, box inserts with rival views on current controversies, and a marginal glossary, as well as vivid graphs, maps, and photographs. With an emphasis on engaging students in the latest international developments, THE GLOBAL FUTURE encourages them to think critically about contemporary issues and form their own opinions on how to address the pressing security, economic, and environmental problems of the twenty-first century.

"This text . . . provides a very concise and 'updated' introduction to International Relation. Its greatest strength . . . is the insightful approach to global terrorism and the novel treatment of arms control from the 'realist' perspective. Both these issues, along with the global political economy and equity problems, seem to be the mandatory items in any discussion of our world in the 21st century."
"This text compares very favorably to the ones I have used in the past. In fact, it is richer in several ways, including the discussion on security and warfare. This book is thorough, balanced, rich, up-to-date, and user-friendly."
"[Kegley is] an excellent, brief introduction to international relations. The research is relatively current, the material is easily accessible and comprehensible to students, and the layout is well organized, clear, speaks to contemporary debates within the field, and utilizes well-thought-out pedagogical tools. It is a well-written and researched introductory textbook that presents the topic of international relations in an exciting and dynamic fashion."
"Overall for me the Kegley text's strength is its scholarship. The authors do an admirable job incorporating recent relevant scholarship and providing an analytical perspective for today's critical issues. They clearly contrast liberal and realist approaches, which I appreciate. They also incorporate much of the latest IPE scholarship."
