Imagine a world where in one moment, there is both divergence and convergence: equality and inequality, harmony and aggression, change and continuity. Imagine our world. This Fourth Edition of Global Politics - Origins, Currents, Directions presents the historical and conceptual origins, shifting currents, and future directions of global issues from a Canadian perspective. As authors Allen Sens and Peter Stoett explore state interaction, non-state actors, war, poverty, and climate change, divergence is often the dominant theme. But the text also highlights the remarkable convergence revealed in global trade, finance, regime building, and communication that allows seemingly incongruous fragments to create a recognizable - and some might suggest greater - whole.
