This textbook has a fairly thorough coverage of a variety of global issues such as free trade, arms proliferation, human rights and the developing world. I bought it for a class and have found it to be fairly easy to learn from, and interesting material. The number of chapters conveniently corresponds to the number of weeks of my class. The review questions at the end of each chapter are helpful in assessing whether key information has been learned.
Important vocabulary words are not boldfaced, leaving it to the reader to judge the importance of the words, but they are usually followed by a lengthy definition. Anyhow, it's good to look up any unfamiliar word in a dictionary.
