Deepen your understanding of global issues with BEYOND SOVEREIGNTY: ISSUES FOR A GLOBAL AGENDA, International Edition. Author Maryann Cusima Love helps you put the subjects of today's headlines-such as global poverty and debt, the environmental crisis, terrorism, disease, WMD proliferation, international crime, drug trafficking, and human trafficking-into the larger context of globalization.
