Introduction to International Studies

Edited by Brian Orend

  • The only book on the market that takes a concise, topical approach to international studies from a Canadian perspective.
  • Written by a high-profile academic who is well-known for his accessible writing style.
  • Case studies help to bring theory alive for students, giving them real-world, relatable examples of complex issues.
  • The shorter length of the book makes it ideal for use in combination with other texts and readers, though it is detailed enough to stand on its own.
  • The interdisciplinary approach used in the text exposes students to many of the individual fields of study that international studies encompasses, including history, economics, political science, law, geography, cultural studies, and health sciences.
  • The inclusion of historical background, coupled with timely subjects such as international law, the global economy, and human rights helps to contextualize these issues, giving students a solid understanding to prepare them for more advanced courses.
