Introduction to Global Politics is an adaptation for the US market of the successful UK textbook Globalization of World Politics (also available at our store), which is now in its 6th edition and was written by Smith, Baylis, and Owens. The first edition of Introduction to Global Politics was published in 2013. The book was originally published in the United Kingdom, but it was adapted for publication in the United States so that it would be more suitable for that country’s market. The first edition of Introduction to Global Politics established a model for success that will be carried over into the fourth edition.
The Fourth Edition of Intro to Global Politics includes both compelling examples and helpful tables. Students are able to recognize the importance of IR thanks to the textbook’s efforts.

It also encourages students to think more deeply about the impact that events happening around the world have. It provides excellent coverage of a wide variety of topics that, in the past, have been neglected. — Petra Henderson and the University of Michigan State
