Now in a fully updated and revised edition, this concise and engaging text introduces global politics and international relations with an emphasis on the "social individual." Using practical examples as well as theory, the authors show students how they can take charge of their lives and the politics that affect them, even in the context of a vast global economy and impersonal international forces that sometimes seem out of control. Filled with idealism, yet firmly grounded in current realities, Global Politics as if People Mattered is a fresh take on the proper place and potential of individuals in world politics-front and center, actively engaged in a way of life that is as politically personal as it is politically powerful.
