Review:

“This excellent reader/survey is the best introduction to theory out there. It is the only one that successfully combines primary texts with the survey material almost all students require to understand the development of theories and to comprehend and engage the readings.”–Lee Metcalf, Florida State University

From the Back Cover:

Introduction to International Relations is the International Relations student's passport to success. Based on many years of active research and teaching it takes the discipline's most difficult aspects and makes them accessible and interesting. Armed with this insight, the 'real world' of news and current affairs takes on new meaning.

Each chapter builds up an understanding of the different ways of looking at the world. From liberalism through to green politics, it examines how different perspectives have developed, who has influenced them the most, and what position they represent on key issues in global politics. 

The clarity of presentation allows students to rapidly develop a theoretical framework and to apply this knowledge widely; both as a way of understanding more advanced theoretical texts and events in world politics.

Key to the book:

-         A comprehensive guide to International Relations theory for undergraduates

-         A lively and student-friendly approach that helps readers to compare and contrast theoretical perspectives

-         An incisive and easy-to-understand description of theory

-         Difficult jargon explained and demystified

-         Illustrated with examples form world events

-         Clear and economical coverage of complex and crucial material

 

 

Jill Steans and Lloyd Pettiford are both experienced teachers and researchers in international relations. Jill is currently Senior Lecturer in International Relations at Birmingham University.
