This is a revised and updated edition of Power, Wealth and Global Equity, the highly successful and innovative textbook on International Relations aimed at students in and of Africa. Like its predecessors, this edition is aimed at students taking introductory courses in International Relations and in African Studies. However, many of the chapters will also appeal to readers interested in contemporary African affairs, and can be used by students in the fields of Foreign Policy, Comparative Politics, History and Political Economy. 

Challenging the intellectual hegemony of ‘the North’, the authors show what the world and its patterns of power, wealth and privilege/marginalisation look like from an African perspective. By helping the reader to understand the origins and dynamics of the structures and institutions and trans-border political and economic interaction in today’s world, the book also empowers students to become active players on the global stage and to contribute to changing these structures and institutions for the better.
This textbook is extremely user friendly, providing the student an extensive glossary, list of acronyms, bibliography, index, maps and biographies of important people mentioned in the text. This edition includes completely new chapters on the international relations of the East and West African regions, as well as an updated chapter on southern Africa.
