?This is a superb survey of one of the leading research communities in the international relations field. It includes analyses of all the right topics by all the right people. The Guide is an invaluable resource both for the classroom and for the cutting-edge scholar.??Jack S. Levy, Rutgers University ?Every once in a very long while a volume comes along that transforms our understanding of international politics. This is such a volume. It offers a comprehensive, clear, and compelling account of the scientific progress made over the past few decades thanks to SSIP. This is a volume that belongs on the syllabus of every introductory undergraduate and every introductory graduate-level course on international relations. It is a truly important book for anyone at any level who wants to understand international affairs.??Bruce Bueno de Mesquita, NYU and Senior Fellow Emeritus, the Hoover Institution, Stanford UniversityFrom the Back Cover:
This edited volume offers students and researchers in international relations a wide-ranging survey of SSIP, the well established analytical approach to IR that employs rigorous methodology. Both strands of SSIP are represented here, one devoted to the collection and analysis of data, the other concerned with developing IR theories using mathematical models. SSIP has traditionally focused on issues related to security and conflict, yet this book reflects recent developments, which include a growing emphasis on civil wars, and models linking domestic and international processes.
Separate sections deal with methodology, substantive topics in conflict and cooperation, and lastly, what SSIP has brought to our understanding of IR, as well as likely directions for future research. The book provides readers with valuable insights into the datasets, methodological advances, formal models, and theoretical arguments advanced by the SSIP research community. As the successes enjoyed by the SSIP approach raise its profile in the academic literature, this volume will introduce a new generation of researchers to the many applications of empirical techniques in IR.
