The joint efforts of author team Karen A. Mingst and Ivan M. ArreguÃ_n-Toft brings a repertoire of expertise to the table in their book Essentials of International Relations (Fifth Edition) (The Norton Series in World Politics), ISBN 9780393935295. This latest edition provides an array of features to equip students to learn about important topics such as war and terrorism while gaining insight on how researchers use concepts and speculation to understand them. One added feature includes expanded 'Global Perspectives' boxes which challenge students to use the concepts within each chapter to think beyond an 'American-centric' perspective on modern issues. One half of this dynamic authoring due, Karen A. Mingst, currently serves as Lockwood Chair Professor at the Paterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce at the University of Kentucky. She has frequently taught the introductory international relations course. Her areas of expertise focus on international organization, international law, and international political economy. Mingst is also a seasoned writer with several published books and articles. She has also conducted research in Western Europe, West Africa, and Yugoslavia. The remaining half of this authoring team is Ivan M. ArreguÃ_n-Toft. He is currently serving as Assistant Professor of International Relations at Boston University, where he teaches introductory international relations, as well as other courses. Professor ArreguÃ_n-Toft is also known as a specialist in security studies and, specifically, asymmetric conflict. The content within the pages of Essentials of International Relations (Fifth Edition) (The Norton Series in World Politics) is divided among 10 chapters. These chapters are devoted to topics such as approaches to international relations, historical contexts of contemporary international relations, how to think about international relations theoretically, the international system, and the state. Other chapters discuss topics surrounding the individual, intergovernmental organizations, nongovernmental organizations, and international law, war and strife, international political economy, and globalizing issues.
