9780230362222: Theories of International Relations

The 5th edition of this best-selling textbook provides a systematic and comprehensive introduction to the main theoretical approaches in the study of international relations. While maintaining focus on the core theories and assessing the importance of theory in the study of International Relations, this edition has been updated throughout to take account of major events and developments, such as the Arab Spring and to reflect the developments in the field, including new material on neo-realism and neo-liberalism, post-colonialism and cosmopolitanism.

Each chapter is written by a leading expert on the theory, elucidating the concepts and its application to field coverage whilst maintaining an objective perspective in their evaluations. This text can be used as reference work for particular theories, or as a tool to learn the use and importance of theory, as well as the particulars of each school of thought.

This text is accessible to students on courses across the world, and it assumes no prior knowledge of any of the theories, making it the ideal companion as students begin studying theories of International Relations, whether at undergraduate or Master's level.

Review:

'Books that get to a fifth edition are clearly doing something right. It is no mystery why this excellent text continues to be used around the world. Comprehensive coverage, impressive depth of analysis and beautifully written chapters all combine to make it highly recommended for both undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Courses that do not use it are missing out, so are their students!' – Colin Wight, University of Sydney, Australia
 
Reviews of previous editions:

'An outstanding textbook.'
- Andreas Bieler, University of Birmingham

'One of the most useful books on International Relations theory to have appeared in recent years...a most valuable addition to the burgeoning literature in the field.'
- Chris Brown, Political Studies

'A very fine book, bringing together a group of contributors who describe the major currents of International Relations theory. Beginning with 'liberal internationalism' and finishing up with 'green politics', the book is highly readable and illuminating for a subject not everyone finds accessible.'
- RUSI Journal
'...and excellent overview of the main theories of international politics and the key debates...provides a careful consideration of the central paradigms...will enrich the intellectual...' Forum: Centre for Citizenship, Development and Human Rights
