Summary
    In addition to the traditional theories used in studying world politics, The Logic of World Politics in the New World Dis-Order provides students with a new conceptual tool to help them make sense of the complex international system that has evolved since the Cold War.

    The book introduces readers to both realpolitik and neo-liberalism. However, rather than focusing on only one as the proper framework for analyzing international events, the text presents readers with a comparative ethos, and stresses the value of choosing the most appropriate framework for analysis in a particular situation.

    The text addresses this comparative ethos and Cold War thematics, topics in world history traditionally associated with realpolitik, U.S. foreign policy as a subset of world politics, topics traditionally associated with neo-liberalism, and failures of the current nation-state system.

    Students learn about globalization, international law and organizations, transnational actors, integration theory, and international security.

    The Logic of World Politics in the New World Dis-Order is appropriate for both upper- and lower-division courses in world politics and international relations.
