Understanding world politics has never been easy, but the more closely we approach the ideal of the global village, the more complex its socioeconomic and legal entanglements become. From the rise of China's growth in trade status to ever growing tensions in the Middle East, ripple effects impact both country and community. Focusing on both print and Internet resources published between 1990 and 2006, Kahl covers such timely topics as human rights, public opinion and polling, arms control, treaties, and terrorism. Over 900 annotated entries cover the major sources, as well as harder-to-find specialized items. For academic and research library collections, as well as faculty members in political science and the diplomatic arts.
