International Relations presents a framework for analyzing our increasingly interconnected world. The authors open your eyes to the events that occur across the globe every day. Providing a strong foundation in contemporary global affairs, the text helps you find your voice and your place in the changing world.

The 13th Edition offers coverage of contemporary topics such as NATO’s response to the Ukraine invasion, virtual currencies, cyberwarfare technologies and more. The text also emphasizes the growing importance of geopolitics, with coverage of the rising political and military competition between the US and China and the challenges presented by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022. Updated Public Opinion and International Relations features and dozens of new photos keep the text current.
