International Politics on the World Stage, Brief 4/e
World Politics: International Politics on the World Stage, Brief, 4/e
John T. Rourke, University of Connecticut - Storrs
Mark A. Boyer, University of Connecticut - Storrs

This brief, basic introduction to world politics offers students a sophisticated theoretical analysis of global politics supported by an up-to-date review of research in the field. This theoretical base is made accessible and interesting to students through the use of contemporary illustrations. Combined with the Online Learning Center, this edition makes extensive use of the growth of information technologies. The Online Learning Center invites the student to make a connection between the basic, necessarily static information in the text and the dynamic information available on the Internet. Students can access such things as maps, tables, biographies, and practice quizzes on the home page. Faculty can access lecture outlines, activity suggestions, and discussion questions. Carefully selected sites on the World Wide Web allow students and faculty the opportunity to explore developments as they occur in the world and to examine issues from a worldwide perspective.
