Much praised for being both accessible and scholarly, John Rourke's text uses current examples to illustrate theories. The eleventh edition has been meticulously revised to recognize new scholarship and to update coverage of world events and trends, including elections in Iraq, Israel's withdrawal from Gaza, the defeat of the E.U. Constitution by French and Dutch voters, the tsunami in Indonesia, the first investigations of the International Criminal Court, corruption in the UN’s oil-for-food program, and growing U.S.-China tensions over China's arms program.
