This is a revised edition of this book on power, wealth, global order and international relations, aimed at students in and out of Africa. Like its predecessor, this edition is aimed at students taking introductory courses in international relations and in Africa studies. However, many of the chapters will also appeal to readers interested in contemporary African affairs, and can be used by students in the Fields of foreign policy, comparative politics, history and political economy. Challenging the intellectual hegemony of the north, the authors show what the world and its patterns of powers, wealth and privilege/marginalisation look like from an African perspective of trans-border political and economic interaction in today's world. It also empowers students to become active players on the global stage and to contribute to changing these structures and institutions for the better. This text provides the student with up-to-date advice on how to use the internet and careers in international relations as well as a glossary, list of acronyms, bibliography, index, maps and biographies of important people mentioned in the text. Teachers of international relations will benefit from the way in which material is selected and presented with the educational challenges of young students in mind.
