For courses in Global Issues, Globalization, and Introduction to International Relations


Explaining the political, economic, and cultural context of issues around the globe

Global Issues is a current and topical look at the forces driving globalization — everything from democratization, human rights, and global finance to population, migration, and noncommunicable diseases. Richard Payne helps students survey global problems that transcend boundaries and are challenging the international system. For global issues or international relations courses, this is the only text of its kind to place complex issues into comprehensive context and thus explain the growing political, economic, and cultural interdependence visible in the headlines and in students’ lives. The Fifth Edition now offers new and updated topics of discussion, as well as many tables and case studies that will engage students and add visual appeal.


NOTE: This ISBN is for a Pearson Books a la Carte edition: a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf text. In addition to the flexibility offered by this format, Books a la Carte editions offer students great value, as they cost significantly less than a bound textbook.
