Global Politics: Myths and Mysteries (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


- How does politics affect you in everyday life?

- What is power and who has it?

- Has the age of empire come to an end?

- Is capitalism the only viable economic system?

Politics is all around us. Global Politics: Myths and Mysteries teaches students that their understanding of the political world is already theoretical, and equips them with the tools to become critical and independent thinkers. Unlike other textbooks on the market, students are invited to actively engage with the questions that shape international politics, such as 'what power relations are you taking part in?'; 'which actors besides the state are important at the global level?' and

'what power do you have to bring about change in global politics?'.

This innovative pedagogical approach unveils a series of entrenched myths and mysteries in global politics in an accessible and engaging way. The text is structured into eleven chapters that cover key issues or 'myths' relating to global politics; students are invited to think critically and theoretically about each of these, whilst drawing on their existing knowledge of politics.

A range of learning features throughout, such as integrated case studies, and reflective activities, help readers to build a foundational knowledge of key concepts in international relations. In addition, a suite of accompanying online resources - including web links, additional case studies and reading lists - help students to take their learning further.
