    Study Tip:

    Marxism is a very different way of looking at the world, one that has profound implications for our understanding of global politics. Make sure you are able to use Marxism as an analytical tool. Practice explaining events like the Iraq War or the conflict in the Sudan through the Marxist perspective.

    Summary

    • After the class on Marxism, you should have a good understanding of how Marxists describe global politics (especially their emphasis on classes as the key actors)

    • You should be able to identify the Marxist view of power and explain how this power is relevant in global politics.

    • You should be able to compare and contrast Marxism with Liberalism and Realism.

    • You should be able to explain the influence of Lenin on Marxist approaches to global politics.

    • Your should be familiar with “dependency theory” and the implications of this theory for global politics today.

    • Next, we will examine a new theoretical challenger: postmodernism and constructivism.
