D'Anieri's INTERNATIONAL POLITICS: POWER AND PURPOSE IN GLOBAL AFFAIRS, 5th Edition, helps you make the connection between academic theories and real-world issues and events. Comparing international politics to a series of intellectual puzzles, the text emphasizes the importance of examining problems from multiple perspectives. Its unique focus on power and purpose involves both the goals that players have in international politics and the ways they have to achieve them. Detailed, up-to-date discussions cover populism and trade wars, critical international relations theory, international hierarchy, the impact of social media and bias, Brexit, U.S.-China trade conflict and much more. Thought-provoking case studies and features on history, policy and geography let you see the world from numerous perspectives while sharpening your critical thinking skills. Also available: MindTap.
