Introduction to Global Politics, Third Edition, brings together an expert team of international scholars to provide students with a current, engaging, and non-U.S. perspective on global politics. It shows students how to analyze global political events using theoretical approaches - both mainstream and alternative - and emphasizes non-state actors more than other textbooks. PEDAGOGICAL FEATURES: * "Thinking about Global Politics" boxes at the end of each chapter give students the opportunity to develop their critical-thinking skills and apply their knowledge to in-depth activities dealing with real-world issues * "Theory in Practice" essays with discussion questions examine real-world scenarios using a variety of theoretical lenses * "Engaging with the World" boxes suggest ways that students can get involved with activist organizations * "Case Study" essays with discussion questions delve into timely moments from world events, providing students with more in-depth analyses of specific topics * "What''s Your Worldview?" critical-thinking questions challenge students to develop their own, more well-informed ideas about global actors and issues * Additional study aids - including a running glossary, a comprehensive glossary, review questions at the end of each chapter, and margin charts - help students better comprehend the material and prepare for tests
