Throughout the text, readers are given opportunities to explore specific international problems.

A final chapter provides advice on how students can further their own global engagement through study abroad, internships, and career choices.

This Second Edition is thoroughly updated to reflect recent events and trends, including cyberterrorism, the rise of ISIS, the spread of Ebola, civil war in South Sudan, and crises in Ukraine and other critical hotspots.

It offers new colour maps and features, an expanded list of resources, and clear learning objectives for every chapter, giving students a solid understanding of the complexity of the issues facing the world today.
