The analytical framework instructors love—and the help students need applying it.

With a framework based on interests, interactions and institutions, World Politics gives students the tools to understand international relations. In the thoroughly updated Fourth Edition, new Controversy units provide models for applying the concepts in each chapter to real-world issues and events.


  • Clear models for analysing real-world cases: In the Fourth Edition, the popular “Controversy” sections in each chapter have been rewritten. They now provide fresh cases and a clearer model for applying concepts to current debates in international politics. “What Shaped Our World” units use the book’s analytical framework to illuminate key historical developments.

  • A contemporary analytical approach — made accessible for introductory students: Written by three leading scholars, World Politics incorporates current research more fully than any other text of its kind. It reflects the way international relations researchers see the field today. The authors’ flexible analytical framework based on interests, interactions and institutions provides the toolkit students need to understand the topic of each chapter.

  • New coverage of today’s greatest international challenges: Thoroughly updated, the Fourth Edition provides insight into recent developments like the rise of nationalism in Europe and the United States, China’s growing influence, new tensions over North Korea’s nuclear weapons and the Paris Agreement on climate change.
