"Introduction to Global Politics is accessible for all students. The pace is active, but not overwhelming, so it keeps the interest of more advanced learners without losing those who are just being introduced to the topics. I will definitely continue to use it for my courses, and I recommend it to colleagues as an excellent framework for discussing global politics." - Bill Bannister, University of Colorado"The key advantage of this book is its global approach. It really does capture a non-US perspective, which is rare among major textbooks in international relations." - Jeffrey Kaplow, College of William and Mary"The authors include a variety of useful tables and graphics, as well as case studies and prompts, to think through global issues through various theoretical perspectives."- Stacey Taninchev, Gonzaga University"I appreciate the book's attempt to set a global and historical context for most of the concepts. Introduction to Global Politics uses plain, accessible language and keeps chapters focused while still canvassing the topics." - Jacob Shively, University of West Florida
