The leading text in international relations is getting even better. Thoroughly revised and reorganized, the 12th edition of WORLD POLITICS: TREND AND TRANSFORMATION presents the most comprehensive coverage of any text. It uses key concepts from major theoretical traditions to analyze both historical and contemporary developments in international relations including such topics as war, terrorism, human rights, the environment, and international development, while emphasizing an institutional approach to resolving international conflict. Author Charles W. Kegley presents the latest material in a thought-provoking way while preparing you to critically assess the problems, payoffs, pitfalls, and paradoxes of choices about the global future and its probable impact on your life after graduation.
