—Marc Polizzi, Murray State University

Invite majors and non-majors alike to participate in the International Relations conversation.

Now publishing with CQ Press, the Third Edition of IR: International, Economic, and Human Security in a Changing World explores the most current issues affecting the global community by analyzing how global actors seek international, economic, and human security. Award-winning scholars and authors James M. Scott, Ralph G. Carter, and A. Cooper Drury combine thought-provoking examples with practical learning tools to give students context and help them develop an understanding of not just what happens, but why and how it happens. Assuming no prior knowledge about international relations, the text provides students with a framework to understand what conditions behavior in the international arena—the challenges of anarchy, diversity, and complexity permeate the multitude of events that comprise of our world today. Students will be able to make sense of the complicated events and interactions of world politics and come away with a broader view of the world’s geographical and political landscapes.
