Spiegel and Wehling give students a basic overview of international relations, helping them discuss world politics from an informed perspective. The authors foster this perspective by moving from concrete (e.g., history, economics, and global issues) to more abstract and theoretical concerns (e.g., security, policy, and levels of analysis). Themes include such post-Cold War issues as co-operation/conflict and globalization/fragmentation.
