Overview

INTERNATIONAL POLITICS: POWER AND PURPOSE IN GLOBAL AFFAIRS, 4th Edition, helps you make the connection between analytical theories and real-world issues and events. The focus on power and purpose engages both the goals that actors have in international politics, and the ways they have to achieve them. Thought-provoking case studies and features on history, policy, and geography let you see the world from multiple perspectives, while critical-thinking questions for each feature ask you to examine what you have learned. The Connection to You boxes show how international politics directly affects the lives of individuals, and how individuals can influence international politics.

Paul D'Anieri, a professor of political science at the University of California, Riverside, has taught international politics for over 25 years. His research focuses on foreign policy in the post-Soviet states -- especially on Ukraine-Russia relations. Dr. D'Anieri's most recent book is UKRAINE AND RUSSIA: FROM CIVILIZED DIVORCE TO UNCIVIL WAR (Cambridge University Press, 2020). He is also the author of ECONOMIC INTERDEPENDENCE IN UKRAINIAN-RUSSIAN RELATIONS; UNDERSTANDING UKRAINIAN POLITICS: POWER, POLITICS, AND INSTITUTIONAL DESIGN; and POLITICS AND SOCIETY IN UKRAINE. In addition, his articles have appeared in numerous academic journals and books on Eastern European politics. He received his Ph.D. from Cornell University in 1991.

  • An updated section on media and foreign policy captures the shift toward new media and will help students think more actively about where their news comes from, and who shapes it.
  • Discussion across multiple chapters of recent events such as the Russia-Ukraine war strengthens for students the connection between the present and past and increases engagement.
  • A significantly enhanced focus on power allows instructors to "unpack" what is meant by power, and to help students think of power more broadly than just coercion. The chapter-closing Power and Purpose… sections have been significantly revised.
  • "The Connection to You" boxes help students connect issues in international affairs to their lives.
  • "The Historical Connection," "The Policy Connection," and "The Geography Connection" boxes all provide context for students to better understand the chapter topics and to build their ability to think critically.
  • A case study approach makes the material more applied for students.
  • The theme of Power and Purpose is better illustrated in this edition through highlights in the Table of Contents and chapter wrap-ups titled Power and Purpose....
  • Expanded coverage of migration in contexts of both human rights issues and international political economy. Other updated content includes coverage of the European Union, drone strikes, and the rise of ISIS.
  • Many instructors cover civil war in their international relations courses, but need to supplement their textbooks because there is not substantial coverage of civil conflict in IR books. The 4th edition offers comprehensive coverage of this issue within the conflict chapters, showing how the international community becomes involved in these conflicts and the impact of these conflicts on other states.
  • Each chapter begins with numbered Learning Objectives and an outline.
