This book is a brief and penetrating introduction to the study of world politics in an era of complex interdependence. This text employs lessons from both theory and history to evaluate conflict and cooperation among global actors and to provide students with a resilient analytical framework. From twentieth and twenty-first century conflicts to global trade and finance, global governance, and the information revolution, this book expands substantially on previous editions of this classic work to provide a lucid and thought-provoking survey of international relations today.
