Editorial Reviews

Review

International Relations has long been the best introduction to the field. It perfectly balances different theoretical approaches to international politics, theoretical and empirical material, and major topics like international security, international political economy, and global social issues. In particular, its coverage of war, civil conflict, and terrorism is outstanding and especially relevant today.”—Andrew Kydd, University of Wisconsin—Madison

 

“Students have realized that women–as factory workers, as peace activists, as political thinkers–need to be discussed in IR courses. Goldstein and Pevehouse’s up-to-the-minute, engaging introductory text responds to this need.”–Cynthia Enloe, Clark University

 

“Goldstein and Pevehouse have uniquely written a text that is a perfect fit not just for introductory international relations courses but also for multidisciplinary international studies courses. Better than anyone, they sensibly combine political science, economics, history, and more with plenty of illustrative regional examples to help my students build a comprehensive picture of the world.”–David Bearce, University of Colorado–Boulder

This book was a pretty good book for my political science 7 class. It goes in great detail and tells you everything you need to know about the subject- short and sweet. One thing I did not like about it (i.e the one star deduction) is that it doesn't go into great detail as I would like it to. It's understandable considering the size of the book. Some of the information that I wanted to know more about I did more research- thats the lawyer side of me. Getting ahead for law school. But this book is overall a good book!

This textbook proved to be very useful in my political science course. The material talked about during lecture was aligned with the contents of the book. I also have to add that my professor used the book as a tool, so not everyone would have the same experience as me. However, the book had a lot of information and simplified the main ideas, situating them in more relatable examples.

The pages and outside binding had some weathering on it, but it was a decent read and the words and pictures were readable. Would work fine for any international relations class.
