A down-to-earth approach to contemporary international relations


IR: The New World of International Relations provides students with a direct and down-to-earth understanding of contemporary international relations. This text surveys key events in world history as well as fundamental theoretical concepts to trace the international system’s evolution and to assess its future. Putting the behavior of global actors into more complete context, IR helps students think critically about the challenges faced by the United States in an era of globalization.


MySearchLab is a part of the Roskin/Berry program. Research and writing tools, including access to academic journals, help students understand critical thinking in even greater depth. To provide students with flexibility, students can download the eText to a tablet using the free Pearson eText app.
