International Relation | Bhupinder S Chimni & Mallavarapu - PEARSON
International Relations: Perspectives for the Global South examines systematically some relevant concepts, approaches and themes germane to the teaching and research of international relations in India, and more generally the Global South. It is an outcome of a sustained conversation between its co-editors regarding the pedagogy and the politics of knowledge informing the study of international relations. This volume departs from conventional texts in the discipline and includes categories of race, class and gender on the one hand and colonialism and imperialism on the other, to understand contemporary world politics. At the same time, it does not ignore mainstream ideas such as security, development and geopolitics, and classical international relations theories such as realism and liberalism.
The volume delves into local and global disciplinary histories to understand a range of developments such as global economic governance, global migration, global culture, global terrorism and global social movements. It also contains instructive chapters on international law and international institutions. Primarily written for students and teachers of international relations, this book will also be useful for scholars located in the allied social sciences.
