    World Perspectives: An Introduction to Global Political Affairs delivers a comprehensive overview of international relations theory, international political economy, international security, and other global issues. This text seeks to help students understand how countries interact and operate on the global level by examining a variety of critical issues, including trade, terrorism, and humans rights. Students will learn about the essential political concepts and theories that surround global issues, which will enable them to link the various political themes to develop an introductory-level understanding of world affairs.

    The combination of scholarly journal articles and book chapters gives depth to each topic, in addition to providing current coverage on what is happening in the world today. World Perspectives provides an engaging reading experience that challenges students to seek information and answers on how the international system operates.
