Based on a combined fifty years of classroom teaching, Hastedt and Felice possess the uncanny ability to boil down complex ideas and make them meaningful for students. Written in a style that is direct and accessible, Introduction to International Politics offers a concise foundation for any introductory-level student taking an international relations or world politics course.
The text offers students a full suite of pedagogical features and learning aids, including a box program consisting of Policy Spotlights, Theory Spotlights, and Regional Spotlights. Each chapter opens with a Historical Perspective case study of a policy challenge, and closes with a related Contemporary Perspective case study of a similar challenge. Chapter study aids include learning objective at the outset, with a list of key terms and critical thinking questions provided at the end.
A full suite of teaching and learning ancillaries include a companion website with self-study quizzes, a test bank, testing software, PowerPoint lecture slides that are WCAG 2.0-compliant, and an E-book with links to the companion website.
