Global Issues is a pedagogically rich book that addresses prominent issues of contemporary concern. From social media and political revolutions to food security and world hunger, each issue is explored in depth, allowing for an applied understanding of more abstract concepts like conflict, globalization, culture, imperialism, gender, political economy, and global citizenship. A cross-cultural approach encourages critical thinking and analysis, guiding readers to think outside the Western box when considering real-world issues from around the globe. Written in a highly accessible and jargon-free style, and including personal narratives from people and experts working in the field, this book offers readers a unique way to understand the global issues that they hear about every day in the media.
