I got this book for an International Relations class I was taking. It had a lot of really good information, and even though some parts were boring (I'm being honest), It was very useful and I learned a lot from it.

I bought this book for my international relations class and it was almost new. Great quality, somewhat interesting book. If it's a required reading it's not the worst textbook I've read
