Description

The selected readings in the second edition of International Studies: Perspectives on a Rapidly Changing World have been carefully chosen to familiarize readers with the debates concerning globalization and give them the conceptual tools needed to analyze a complex, interdependent world.

The articles have been organized into six sections which cover: globalization; international relations and organizations; human rights and humanitarianism; global health and the environment; human development; and culture and identity. Specific topics include global citizenship, the United Nations, nationalism, global economic inequality, human security, and intersectionality.

The second edition has been updated with eleven new readings that explore authorship of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the history of international human rights law, climate change debates, Native art, identity, and performance, and more.

Rather than simply paraphrasing scholarly sources, International Studies presents a variety of perspectives on issues of global significance for readers to consider, evaluate, and analyze. Featuring work from important thinkers and compelling voices in the discipline, the anthology gives readers a clear understanding of some of the challenges facing the world today. It is well suited to courses in international and global studies.

She teaches in the Program on International and Comparative Studies at the University of Michigan, where she is also an associate faculty member in the Center for Russian and East European Studies. She has been published online in The Conversation, Cultural Anthropology, and more, and she is the author of books, book chapters, and scholarly articles.
