Arlene B. Tickner, Universidad de los Andes This textbook offers an extraordinary combination of historical, conceptual, and thematic breadth; accessible prose written by some of IR's greatest minds; and a perspective that is genuinely global in scope. It is a must-read for students of International Relations from around the world.

Valerie D'Erman, sessional instructor, University of Victoria Review from previous edition I love this text and the students do too. It's received very high evaluations and students have given a lot of positive feedback about this text. One student described it as "empowering" - I can't think of a better recommendation than that.

Felix Ciuta, Senior Lecturer in International Relations, University College London The Globalization of World Politics is the most comprehensive International Relations textbook. The number and diversity of topics covered makes it a very flexible teaching tool.

Pia Riggirozzi, Lecturer in Global Politics, University of Southampton This is a brilliant textbook that helps set common ground in introductory courses that are attended by many students with different backgrounds.

Kenneth McDonagh, Lecturer in International Relations, Dublin City University The Globalization of World Politics gives undergraduate students an informative and accessible overview of what is an extremely challenging and complex subject.

Mark Garnett, Senior Lecturer, Lancaster University This is a comprehensive analysis of contemporary developments in global politics, written by a team of experts in the various fields. It makes its subject-matter accessible to undergraduates without disguising the complexity of the concepts and issues it explores. It covers both the theories and the practice of international relations in a way which will satisfy the requirements of all introductory courses, while laying the foundations for specialised study at more
advanced levels.
