Solution Manual For Crossing Borders International Studies for the 21st Century 3rd Edition By Harry I. Chernotsky, Heidi H. Hobbs, ISBN: 9781506346922, ISBN: 9781544343396, ISBN: 9781544354309

“Crossing Borders is the best textbook available for International Studies courses.  It tackles complex global issues from a multidisciplinary perspective, doing so in a way that is both accessible and engaging for students.  Most importantly, students come away with an understanding of how those issues impact their day-to-day lives, as well as how they can participate in the increasingly interconnected world around them as global citizens.”

—Michael Makara, University of Central Missouri

Crossing Borders provides a framework for students built upon an understanding of the many borders that define the international system. Renowned authors Harry I. Chernotsky and Heidi H. Hobbs address many of the different fields that constitute international studies—geography, politics, economics, sociology, and anthropology—and give instructors a starting point from which they can pursue their own disciplinary interests. By integrating research and current examples, the Third Edition encourages students to identify their role in today’s international arena and what it means to be a global citizen. Not only do students develop a better understanding of the world, they also receive advice on how to increase their own global engagement through study abroad, internships, and career options.
