SUMMARY

Praise for the previous editions:?A much-needed alternative to the usual treatment of world politics.'?International Journal of Comparative Sociology?Mel Gurtov's enormous contribution is to provide an alternative to the misplaced faith in global markets and the nation-state system as the best means to provide for human needs and genuine security.'?Paul Joseph, Tufts UniversityTraditional studies of world politics emphasize the struggle between states as they search for national security. But increasing interdependence has transformed the world political agenda, creating the need for new tools to explain the changing reality of global politics. Global Politics in the Human Interest provides those tools.This fully revised fifth edition thoroughly covers post?September 11 developments. Addressing such interrelated issues as terrorism, democratic transitions, nationalism, human rights violations, armed conflicts, economic globalization, and sustainable development, Gurtov explores the threats and opportunities posed by the changing world order. The book retains its practical bent, revealing how global politics affects the quality and content of people's lives. Mel Gurtov is professor of political science and international studies at Portland State University. His most recent book is Superpower on Crusade: The Bush Doctrine in US Foreign Policy. Professor Gurtov is editor-in-chief of Asian Perspective a quarterly journal in international affairs.Contents: Crisis and Interdependence in Contemporary World Politics.
