Case Histories in International Politics Fifth Edition Kendall W. Stiles Providing historical illustrations of the core concepts in international relations, the original case studies in Case Histories in International Politics closely examine major international political events in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. By examining the key issues and problems that have arisen over the last fifty years, the fifth edition looks beyond current events to provide a historical perspective and theoretical framework for analyzing world affairs. Each case study includes a chronology, biographies of key actors, maps, and data tables to establish historical and geographic context. In addition, debate topics and discussion questions encourage critical thinking about the cases and their contemporary relevance, and a new feature, Thinking Theoretically, prompts students to apply international relations theory to the cases. New Cases in the Fifth Edition Human Trafficking explores a burning human rights issue and reviews the efforts states are making to address it. The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda focuses on the genocide in Rwanda and efforts by the international community and the Rwandan government to apprehend and convict war criminals. Regionalism in the Developing World looks at three different economic alliances to investigate the way in which developing countries are establishing greater international cooperation. Pandemics examines several of the most contagious and deadly diseases on the planet, how they are spreading, and how international organizations are trying to stop the spread.
