Objective, critical, optimistic, and with a global focus, this textbook combines international relations theory, history, up-to-date research, and current affairs to give students a comprehensive, unbiased understanding of international politics. It integrates theory and traditional approaches with globalization and research on such topics as terrorism, new economic superpowers, and global communications and social networking to offer unusual breadth and depth for an undergraduate course. The text is enhanced by box features and 'Close Up' sections with context and further information; 'Critical Case Studies' highlighting controversial and complex current affairs that show how the world works in practice; and questions to stimulate discussion, review key concepts, and encourage further study. Unlike any other textbook, Global Politics in the 21st Century demonstrates the significance and interconnectivity of globalization and new security challenges in the twenty-first century and illuminates the role of leadership in transnational crises.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Global Politics in the 21st Century is an impressive book that successfully conveys the complexity of this subject to a wide audience. An essential argument, which plays a role throughout, is that the context of world history shapes what is seen today. This manuscript offers a splendid synthesis of scholarship in the field of international relations. I am aware of no other work that attempts such a comprehensive integration of research and puts it forward so clearly. This book is essential reading for everyone with an interest in international relations.' Patrick James, Dornsife Dean's Professor, University of Southern California
'Robert Jackson has written a lucid and astonishingly wide-ranging analysis of the history and practice of international affairs. This is an ideal textbook for students who want a comprehensive synthesis and assessment of the major trends in world affairs.' Philip Towle, University of Cambridge
