Product Description

Review

The Globalization of World Politics is one of the most commercially successful textbooks published by Oxford University Press, and with even a quick flick through it is not difficult to see why. It aims to combine history, theory, structure and process with contemporary international issues, and it does so in a way that is clearly presented. This is an ideal text for students who are new to the subject, but it also remains a key resource as students continue in their studies. Although the book's aim is introductory, its breadth and depth make it a worthwhile investment. (Ariene Caloia, third-year politics student, Royal Holloway, University of London)

I have had very, very good experiences with your "IR bible" [The Globalization of World Politics by Baylis et al] as well as Strategy in the Contemporary World. I wish all my books were this informative - extremely well written, clearly structured and of high quality! Everywhere I go, I take these books with me. Keep up the good work! (Romain Markwalder, Postgraduate student, King's College, London)

The events of 11 September 2001 (hereafter, 9/11), probably more than any other single event, brought home just how globalized the contemporary world is. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Purchase! 20 Oct 2013
By Ostap
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book is really "like new". I'm very satisfied with the purchase. The only "but" is that I was waiting for it around three weeks. It seems there exist some problems with books' shipping around the EU (I live in Poland)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Intro 2 May 2009
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent book for the first year of an international relations and politics degree. A good starting point during research over all 3 years of an undergraduate degree.

Everything is clearly presented and brings clarity to complex issues. This book is an excellent starting point for research before spending hours going through academic journals.

This book also comes with internet resources. Access is only for 3 years. However, the case studies posted can come in useful when essay writing but I have yet to use them except for rare occassions.

I do wish this book had been recommended at the start of first semester.

A very helpful book, a great starting point on many topics.
