The articles have been organized into six sections which cover globalization, international relations and organizations, human rights and humanitarianism, global health and the environment, human development, and culture and identity. Specific topics include global citizenship, the United Nations, nationalism, global economic inequality, human security, and intersectionality.
Rather than paraphrasing scholarly sources like a conventional textbook, International Studies presents a variety of perspectives on issues of global significance for readers to consider, evaluate, and analyze. Featuring work from important thinkers and compelling voices in the discipline, the anthology gives readers a clearer understanding of some of the challenges facing the world today. It is well suited to courses in international and global studies.
