IR - International Student Edition
Seeking Security, Prosperity, and Quality of Life in a Changing World

Fourth Edition


February 2021 | 496 pages | CQ Press

IR: Seeking Security, Prosperity, and Quality of Life in a Changing World invites students into the debates in world politics and supports them as they engage with ideas and events by providing a clear introduction to not just what happens, but why and how it happens. Assuming no prior knowledge about international relations, award-winning teachers and scholars James M. Scott, Ralph G. Carter, and A. Cooper Drury meet students where they are and provide them with a framework to make sense of the complicated events and interactions of world politics. 

The latest edition is thoroughly updated to provide insights into recent world developments.
