International Studies

The challenge of teaching international studies is to help students think coherently about the multiple causes and effects of global problems. In International Studies: Global Forces, Interactions, and Tensions (Sage Publishing, 2018), award-winning scholars Scott Straus and Barry Driscoll, assistant professor of political science, give students a clear framework that pinpoints how key factors — forces, interactions, and tensions — contribute to world events, with both global and local consequences.
