Fully revised and updated, this new edition of Introducing Global Issues explores the challenging contemporary issues of conflict and security, the global economy, development, and the environment. Notable features of the new edition include: a discussion of the war in Iraq; a stronger focus on global security and terrorism; an expanded discussion of concepts of identity; an engagement with the debate over free trade; thorough coverage of current environmental concerns; The material has been successfully designed for readers with little or no prior knowledge of the topics covered.
