Essentials of International Relations, 9th Edition


ISBN: 9780393872200

Core concepts with more context.

Essentials of International Relations has long provided the clearest explanations of core concepts and theories. With a new chapter on the environment, and extensive coverage of the coronavirus pandemic and global health, Heather McKibben continues to enliven Karen Mingst’s classic, concise text. Refined and expanded InQuizitive activities help students learn, retain, and apply key concepts to real-world events. Plus, new biweekly News Analysis activities help students apply the main theories of the text to contemporary real-world examples they would encounter in the media.
