The extensively revised new edition of Global Politics provides a systematic and integrated analysis of the theory and practice of contemporary international relations. Written with outstanding clarity and drawing on an exceptionally wide range of theoretical perspectives throughout, each chapter is packed with innovative features to aid study and reinforce learning: Full-page case studies of Global Politics in Action, the majority entirely new to this edition, look behind the headlines to illuminate major events in world affairs Global Actor case studies consider the nature and significance of key players on the world stage, from Google to the G-20 Focus and Debating features look closer at issues and approaches to promote critical thinking Photographs and biographies of influential theorists introduce the people, as well as the ideas, that have shaped the subject. This second edition is fully updated to cover key developments, from the Arab Spring to the global financial crisis, and provides enhanced coverage of issues like international migration. An entirely new chapter on theory at the end of the book revisits key perspectives, and addresses deeper questions about the nature and purpose of theory in international relations."

Publisher reviews

"Excellent! A first-rate text which I look forward to using in class. Rich in themes, comprehensive in scope and beautifully woven together with illuminating theoretical threads, it introduces IR but also moves beyond and its innovative lay-out will fire students' imagination." - Torbjorn L Knutsen, University of Trondheim (NTNU), Norway 'The second edition of Global Politics shows once again that Heywood is the master of the introductory text.' Richard Stubbs, McMaster University, Canada 'This updated second edition maintains the standard of the first as an invaluable teaching aid for our first year IR students. The topical case studies and international perspective are particularly impressive.' - Nick Bisley, La Trobe University, Australia 'This is a first rate textbook which offers a sure-footed theoretical and empirical guide through the labyrinth of contemporary international relations. It is highly user-friendly. The new edition incorporates crucial new material on tectonic shifts in the Middle East and North Africa.'- Jolyon Howorth, Yale University, USA "[T]he most comprehensive, theoretically and historically-informed introductory text available." - Jacqui True, University of Auckland, New Zealand "Truly global without neglecting the international. Comprehensive, theoretically grounded and impressively integrated, Heywood's thoughtful and clearly-written introduction has the potential to change how international relations is taught." - Terry Nardin, National University of Singapore, Singapore

Calculating estimated delivery times

Delivery is estimated at 1-3 working days after dispatch (depending upon options chosen at checkout) PLUS the "Availability" time estimate given in the product price section at the top of the page. Ex. if this states "Usually Dispatched Within 1 Working Day" and you order at 11am the delivery estimate would be 3 days. Orders from 6pm for example wouldn't process that day so delivery estimate would be 4 days. Also please note that we do not dispatch on the weekend and do not class these as working days.

Delivery Issues

What if my order hasn't dispatched within the dispatch time estimate?

Sorry if this occurs with your order - we are still processing the order and will dispatch ASAP. Typically any delays encountered are for just a 24 hour period. If you wish to cancel the order & source elsewhere please contact us.

What if my shipment is overdue?

In the event of 15 working days passing from the point of dispatch with no goods being received we will confirm the delivery address with yourself and normally would either dispatch a replacement shipment or issue a refund.

FAQ

Why is next day delivery not available?

As the site gets bigger it will be but we don't have sufficient volume to offer this currently.

Can I collect from your warehouse?

No sorry. We are internet trading only, previously we did have a bookshop where this was possible.

How can I enter a coupon code?

On the cart page under the "Use A Coupon" tab.

Can I order by phone?

Sorry this isn't available for smaller orders (under £250), the costs of telephone staff don't cover the extra sales generated.

Do you have fly fishing by JR Hartley?

Sorry out of stock - if it's not for sale on the site we don't have it. We may add the ability to pre-order titles in the future.

Are all items held in stock?

Not all - we have over £900,000 of stock in our warehouse but would need tens of millions of pounds worth of inventory to have just 1 copy of everything for sale on the site. We place daily orders with in excess of 100 publishers and wholesalers who typically deliver into us next day. Also please note if placing a larger order the delivery time frame may slightly increase due to the need to possibly source titles from multiple suppliers. Please note this is the same model used by nearly all online booksellers.

Why do you have .se on your website name & not .com?

We wanted a new site as the old one (Aphrohead.com) didn't perform to expectations, no offers to take us over came in from Amazon or Theo Paphitis etc. We came up with the name Books Please so had the choice of going with booksplease.co.uk or booksplea.se. Decided to go for booksplea.se - it seems to confuse a few but still seems to work better than Aphrohead.

I'm pleased with your service and want to leave a review of your site?

Please if you are so inclined leave a review on Google. We seem to have picked up 6 bad reviews and just 4 good ones (from over 170k orders under the booksplease name). Hardly anyone leaves a review for us on there but this is the first thing you see googling our name so we rely on happy customers helping us out.

I've never ordered off you is it safe?

It's safe & all will be ok - you may have ordered from us before under our previous selling name "Aphrohead" - we have processed around 18,000,000 orders since the companies formation in 2005. We are located in Southport, UK
