This core text is the first to provide a much-needed interdisciplinary approach to international studies. Emphasizing the interconnected nature of history, geography, anthropology, economics, and political science, International Studies details the methodologies and subject matter of each discipline then applies these discipline lenses to seven regions: Europe; East Asia and the Pacific; South and Central Asia; sub-Saharan Africa; the Middle East and North Africa; Latin America; and North America. This disciplinary and regional combination provides an indispensable, cohesive framework for understanding global issues.

The fully updated fourth edition includes four new global issues chapters: The Refugee Crisis in Europe; The Syrian Civil War and the Rise of the Islamic State; Global Climate Change; and The Globalization of Modern Sports.

Reader Reviews


"International Studies does what textbooks in comparative and international politics too often fail to do adequately-explain big ideas while delivering the context and color to tickle the imagination and appreciate what is at a stake and why it matters. Chapters on the disciplines of history, politics, geography, anthropology, and economics provide the tools for effective social science thinking."—Dylan Bennett, University of Wisconsin – Waukesha
"International Studies teaches students to think as historians, economists, anthropologists, political scientists and geographers, while guiding them through every major region in the world and a variety of key global issues. Its accessibility, breadth of coverage, and clarity of writing all make it an ideal choice for use in an introductory course."—James R. Stocker, Trinity Washington University
