    Welcome to the new Palgrave Macmillan Globalization and International Relations Catalogue.

    This year we are delighted to be publishing several paperbacks with wide, general appeal as well as a typically strong line-up of undergraduate and academic texts. Inside Egypt, already a bestseller in hardback, is now available for the first time in paperback; as is the chilling indictment of Guantanamo Bay Prison, Five Years of my Life. A new book co-published with Amnesty International, Created Equal, provides a valuable and very accessible overview of the current state of womens rights around the world.

    New academic highlights include some valuable additions to the highly regarded Palgrave Advances series: Jim Whitmans Palgrave Advances in Global Governance and Oliver Richmonds Palgrave Advances in Peacebuilding, plus some major new additions to the International Political Economy and Palgrave Studies in International Relations series. Another key highlight is Ronald Bleikers Aesthetics and World Politics.

    New textbooks to watch out for include the third edition of our bestselling title Global Political Economy (Robert OBrien & Marc Williams); a brand new text on Issues in 21st Century World Politics (Mark Beeson & Nick Bisley), International Relations Theory (Knud Erik Jorgensen) which offers a new look at IR theory, International Security (Michael E. Smith), perfect for all students of security studies and the fourth edition of the ever popular Diplomacy (G.R. Berridge).
