The first text in the field to be written following the end of the Cold War, Goldstein's International Relations evenly balances security and economic issues. It also distinguishes itself from the competition through its strong coverage of alternative theoretical perspectives, the environment, and women. The book integrates technology seamlessly with marginal icons linking to additional online content such as video clips, interactive simulations, and practice tests. The Updated Seventh Edition offers a brand new feature — “Careers in IR”–that will help students apply their study of international relations to their own career plans, as well as key updates on ever-changing topics such as the war in Iraq, Iran’s nuclear weapons program, Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza strip, Palestinian and Israeli elections, Islamic radicalism in Europe, possible bird flu pandemics and rising AIDS infections, China on the rise, the election of the first woman president in Africa, and more. Lauded for its commitment to currency, lively writing style, colorful photo program, and abundance of examples, International Relations has long been a favorite of both students and instructors because it makes the rich complexity of international politics accessible and exciting

Joshua Goldstein and Jon Pevehouse’s lively writing, abundant visuals, and seamless integration of learning technology make this text a favorite of instructors and students alike.Review:
“International Relations has long been the best introduction to the field. It perfectly balances different theoretical approaches to international politics, theoretical and empirical material, and major topics like international security, international political economy, and global social issues. In particular, its coverage of war, civil conflict, and terrorism is outstanding and especially relevant today.”?Andrew Kydd, University of Wisconsin?Madison
“Students have realized that women–as factory workers, as peace activists, as political thinkers–need to be discussed in IR courses. Goldstein and Pevehouse’s up-to-the-minute, engaging introductory text responds to this need.”–Cynthia Enloe, Clark University
“Goldstein and Pevehouse have uniquely written a text that is a perfect fit not just for introductory international relations courses but also for multidisciplinary international studies courses. Better than anyone, they sensibly combine political science, economics, history, and more with plenty of illustrative regional examples to help my students build a comprehensive picture of the world.”–David Bearce, University of Colorado–Boulder
