    Informative and highly relevant to contemporary global politics, the readings in the anthology International Relations in the Global Village teach students about fundamental international relations theories and explain the implications these theories have for nation-states, sub-national groups, surpranational organizations, and the people who comprise them.

    Beginning with realism, liberalism, and idealism, the book examines how certain theories took root and developed over time. It addresses how these theories affected history, shaping or changing it. The material then moves on to more contemporary theories including recent discourse on human rights, internationalism, and globalization, and examines how these have led to a new phase in world affairs. Finally, the material sheds lights on current issues of international security, terrorism, and feminism in conjunction with democratization and Islamization.

    Students will increase their understanding of how governments, international organizations, and global institutions take part in the making of the international community.

    International Relations in the Global Village offers articulate, balanced points of view on complex issues. An intelligent, well-thought-out blend of the theoretical and the actual, the book is an ideal reader for courses in international relations and current world affairs.
