  • ISBN13: 978-0-495-00748-7

The GLOBAL FUTURE was written to provide an alternative to lengthly, detailed textbooks. As a brief introduction to the study of international relations, based on the framework of Charles Kegley's best selling WORLD POLITICS: TREND AND TRANSFORMATION; THE GLOBAL FUTURE is written in a clear, accessible style that also provides a set of concepts and analytic tools to help you understand contemporary events and emerging global trends. Every chapter contains thought-provoking case studies, box inserts with rival views on current controversies, and a marginal glossary, as well as vivid graphs, maps, and photographs. With an emphasis on the latest international developments, THE GLOBAL FUTURE encourages them to think critically about contemporary issues and form their own opinions on how to address the pressing security, economic, and environmental problems of the twenty-first century.
