This multi-authored textbook helps to critically understand the major concepts, theories and issues of international politics in a constantly changing environment.
Designed as a core textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students, this book provides a roadmap to orient students to the main concepts, theories and issues in world politics today. Each chapter provides an analytical overview of the issues addressed, identifies the central actors and perspectives, and outlines past progress and future prospects.
The highlight of the book is a critical overview of the major theories of international politics apart from a fairly detailed chapter on India’s foreign policy. This revised edition includes new chapters on the impacts of globalization, regionalism and global politics and perspectives from the global South. Debates and discourses on contemporary issues such as terrorism, human rights, development, security and the role and relevance of international organizations have been updated to suit recent curriculum requirements.
• Critical overview of the major theories and issues of international politics
