From Library Journal:

How do neutralism and neutrality differ? Who can possibly pick a MIRV from an MRBM or an SLBM? What was the Kennedy (or, for that matter the Nixon or Carter) Doctrine? This new addition to a surprisingly uncrowded field has more than 600 entries, including the above. Most of the content consists of nuts and bolts political science terminology as well as names linked with ideas or concepts, e.g., Marxism/Leninism. As always with this kind of work, it is amusing to see what is in and what is not: the foreign terms ost politik and detente are included, but not casus belli ; the Organization of American States but not its African equivalent (Organization of African Unity); hegemony makes it while imperialism is left out. Compiled by two Welsh academics and written in an engaging style, this dictionary is right up to date regarding events in Central and Eastern Europe. An essential purchase for most libraries.-- Ian Wallace, Agriculture Canada Lib., St.
