Summary

This core text is the first to provide a much-needed interdisciplinary approach to international studies. The authors include a geographer, a historian, a political scientist, and an anthropologist. Emphasizing the interconnected nature of these disciplines, the authors detail the methodologies and subject matter of each to provide a fuller understanding of the world. Applying these discipline lenses to regional chapters, the authors examine issues facing these regions and the global community. Case studies give readers a closer look at issues such as civil war and national identity. This disciplinary and regional combination provides an indispensable, cohesive framework for understanding global issues The second edition includes: Extensive updates throughout to reflect important events over the past four years, including the global financial crisis Two chapters on Asia, instead of one, with new coverage of South Asia Two new global issues chapters, one on the Sudan and one on global population An entirely new conclusion emphasizing the integration of the disciplines and their application
