The Globalization of World Politics

An Introduction to International Relations

Fifth Edition

Edited by John Baylis, Steve Smith, and Patricia Owens

Working from a unique non-U.S. perspective, The Globalization of World Politics, Fifth Edition, is a comprehensive introduction to international relations that provides a coherent, accessible, and lively account of the globalization of world politics.

Now in its fifth edition, the text has been fully revised and updated in light of recent developments in world politics, with new chapters on post colonialism and post structuralism. The fifth edition also increases its emphasis on the global financial crisis, forced migration, diplomacy, and religion.

New to this Edition:

  • Two brand-new chapters--on post structuralism and post colonialism--that provide more detailed coverage of alternative approaches to IR theory
  • Updates all chapters in light of the latest global events including the 2008 financial crisis, forced migration, diplomacy, and religion
  • Adds three new contributors--international scholars Matthew Watson, Tony Evans, and Jack Donnelly--who have substantially revised three chapters
  • An enhanced and updated Companion Website, which contains resources for instructors (case studies, an interactive library of links to journal articles, blogs, and video content; a test bank; a question bank; PowerPoint-based lecture slides; and figures and tables from the book) and students (case studies, a flashcard glossary, multiple-choice questions, relevant links, a news feed, video podcasts from the contributors, and a revision guide.)
