VERY SHORT INTRODUCTIONS TO GLOBAL STUDIES
Select your Materials
Klaus Dodds explains that geopolitics devises simplified models (or descriptions) of the world to inform policymakers. Manfred B. Steger points out that globalization is, at root, a set of social transformations—albeit with economic, political, and cultural dimensions. Considering human rights, Andrew Clapham concentrates on the power of ideas to mobilize people against injustices and indignities. And Paul Wilkinson, introducing international relations, recognizes two schools of thought: realist theory (which advocates grabbing power) and liberal institutionalism (which advocates sharing power).
