DESCRIPTION

In this extensively revised new edition of Global Politics, internationally renowned author Andrew Heywood provides a systematic and integrated analysis of the theory and practice of contemporary international relations. This edition is fully updated to cover key developments, from the Arab Spring to the global financial crisis, and provides enhanced coverage of current issues like international migration. An entirely new chapter on the importance and impact of theory at the end of the book revisits key perspectives, and addresses deeper questions about the nature and purpose of theory in global politics.Written with outstanding clarity and drawing on an exceptionally wide range of theoretical perspectives throughout, each chapter is packed with innovative features to aid study and reinforce learning. To complement this textbook, there is a companion website with resources for both lecturers and students. Exam questions, PowerPoint slides, online-only case-studies, self-test questions, and more, can be found at https://he.palgrave.com/companion/Heywood-Global-Politics/
