World Politics, also called world political science, refers to both the field which studies the global political and economic patterns and the political systems that are being studied simultaneously. In the middle of this field are the various socio-economic processes of international politics in reference to questions of political power. The social and political dimensions of politics are extremely important in the study of international politics. Studying world politics goes hand in hand with studying international economic and political history. Politics and economic interaction have a profound effect on the direction of international trade and finance.
World Politics is an important field and holds tremendous potential for those interested in international relations, including political science, sociology, history and even international business and economics. There are numerous books and journals on world politics. This article aims to provide a basic introduction to the field. The aim of this introductory article is to provide the reader with some foundational knowledge about world politics and the influence it has on us.
Introduction to World Politics has been an object of fascination for many thinkers since the ancient times. Its influences can be found in the works of such eminent philosophers as Aristotle, Plato, Machiavelli, and Hobbes. The work of those philosophers who are remembered for their controversial political theories and interventions into world politics include those of Machiavelli, Aristotle, and Plato.
Comparative Politics Since the late twentieth century, the field of world politics has been increasingly applied to socio-economic development and political organization. International political competition has developed over time and international trade and global political organization has become an increasingly significant area of socio-economic development. Since international politics has become an increasingly important issue in socio-economic development, comparative political theory is an important field of study.
The Theory of World Politics The work of those who wish to understand world politics generally agree on one fundamental point: political systems and national governments are shaped by external actors who have long been influencing the evolution of political economies. One of these actors is the United States. The aim of this paper is to highlight the relationship between international politics and the theory of world politics. Drawing on approaches to international political economy and world government, we argue that the theory of world politics and the analysis of international political economy have a strong predictive value for understanding theories of international political economy.
Insights into the Nature of World Politics Finally, a number of people have sought to shed light on the nature of world politics and its effects on the design of nation states and their relation to other political entities. One of these insights is provided by the work of Carl Schmitt and Alfred Thierlein. Using a rich array of case studies, they argue that a conception of world politics sheds light on the process through which international relations are attained, and how they deteriorate.
