Book Description
Fully revised and updated to cover the latest developments in world politics, the new edition of this highly successful textbook will once again provide the ideal introduction for all students of International Relations. Written specially for those coming to the subject for the first time, this text has been carefully edited by John Baylis and Steve Smith to ensure a coherent, accessible, and lively account of the globalization of world politics. The book is accompanied by a dedicated WEBSITE - including powerpoint slides; further questions, maps, figures and table for each chapter; and an interactive theory site 'IR Theory in Practice'. This site helps students fully understand IR theory and puts the theory into practice with analysis of real-life issues. NEW TO THIS EDITION: DT Updated to reflect events since 1997, with more attention given to the integration of the globalization theme throughout the book. DT The HISTORY section now has a new chapter by Michael Cox on 'International History since 1990' bringing the story of International Relations up to the present day. DT The THEORY section has been significantly reorganized following feedback from teachers and includes a new chapter on 'Contemporary Mainstream Approaches' by Steve Lamy. The new organization of this section allows more room to introduce to the main theories of International Relations (such as realism and liberalism) and to explain complex theoretical developments in more detail. DT The INTERNATIONAL ISSUES section now includes a chapter on 'The Communications and Internet Revolution in IR' by Jonathan Aronson and a substantially revised chapter on 'Culture in World Affairs' by Simon Murden. DT The book also includes new contributions on International Political Economy (Ngaire Woods) and European Integration (Thomas Christiansen). DT NEW concluding section on 'Globalization in the Future': this new final section contains two chapters by leading International Relations scholars - Andrew Linklater on 'Globalization and the Transformation of Political Community' and Ian Clark on 'Globalization and the Post-Cold War Order'.

    Un notevole affresco delle principali tematiche che influenzano la dinamica delle relazioni internazionali. L'opera è divisa in utili sezioni: nella prima viene descritta l'evoluzione storica dello scenario politico internazionale dal 1900 alla "War on Terror" di Bush; la seconda parte invece tratta gli aspetti teoretici della disciplina comprendendo i "neo-ismi" ed i contributi più recenti. La terza parte si focalizza sulle strutture: la sicurezza internazionale, la politica economica, il diritto, la diplomazia e gli attori internazionali e transnazionali. L'opera si chiude con numerosi capitoli su terrorismo, ambiente, cultura, integrazione, ecc.
    L'approccio generale è quello di leggere le varie tematiche attraverso differenti lenti interpretative e di dare di ogni problema diversi punti di vista. Indispensabile per chiunque - studente, studioso, politico o giornalista - voglia occuparsi seriamente di questi argomenti.
