"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
