Can you be a citizen of the world? How important is religion today? Why is peace more challenging to achieve than war? How has Covid-19 worsened global inequality? This second edition of Global Studies will equip you with the tools to answer these questions and many more as it delves into the important issues and events that determine the state of the world today. Succinct, authoritative and thought-provoking, it covers all of the key dimensions of global studies, including broad introductions to international politics and economics, alongside focused surveys on pressing global changes such as human rights, migration and the climate emergency. It encourages you to assess how the connections and divisions that exist between the 7.6 billion humans on earth have been shaped and influenced, and what direction they may take next. Assuming no prior knowledge of the subject, this textbook is ideal for undergraduate students worldwide who are taking introductory modules in Global and International Studies. The text can also be used by undergraduate students taking courses on Globalization.
