You are being watched. Your every movement is being tracked, your every word recorded. Your spouse may be an informer, your children may be listening at your door, your best friend may be a member of the secret police. You are alone among thousands, among great crowds of the brainwashed, the well-behaved, the loyal. Productivity has never been higher, the media blares, and the army is ever triumphant. One wrong move, one slip-up, and you may find yourself disappeared -- swallowed up by a monstrous bureaucracy, vanished into a shadowy labyrinth of interrogation chambers, show trials, and secret prisons from which no one ever escapes. Welcome to the world of the dystopia, a world of government and society gone horribly, nightmarishly wrong. What happens when civilization invades and dictates every aspect of your life? From 1984 to The Handmaid's Tale, from Children of Men to Bioshock, the dystopian imagination has been a vital and gripping cautionary force. Brave New Worlds collects the best tales of totalitarian menace by some of today's most visionary writers, including Neil Gaiman, Paolo Bacigalupi, Orson Scott Card, Kim Stanley Robinson, and Ursula K. Le Guin. When the government wields its power against its own people, every citizen becomes an enemy of the state. Will you fight the system, or be ground to dust beneath the boot of tyranny?

International Politics: Comparing Paradigms How the World Works: A Brief Survey of International Relations provides the detailed, micro-level knowledge readers need to understand world politics, harnessing their curiosity about global current events. The text covers the continuing swirl of events that dominate world politics in our present–from the Arab Spring, to the Russian invasion of Crimea, to the rise of ISIS, to the Ebola crisis in West Africa. The Third Edition makes improvements upon the book in general while maintaining its core mission: to tap into reader interest in current events and help each reader build a conceptual and theoretical sophistication that remains when these current events become a part of history. The text challenges readers to question their assumptions about the world and what they may think they already know about international relations. Overall, the text makes it clear that even scholars and politicians disagree about the world’s political and economic interactions, and makes a point to introduce readers to all paradigms–encouraging them to form their own opinions about how the world works.
