Editorial Reviews

Review

"This work is an outstanding introduction to the theory of international relations. The authors cover a wide range of theoretical approaches and do so in a probing yet accessible manner. With its exemplary balance and clarity, the book deserves a wide readership among students young and old."--David Hendrickson, Colorado College"Jackson and Sorensen's Introduction to International Relations has already become a classic, and the fourth edition of their text only confirms their accomplishment as thought-provoking, exceptionally clear in expression, and complete and balanced in their treatment of a contentious field."-- David Clinton, Baylor University"A unique and highly valuable textbook that offers students succinct understandings of diverse international relations theories and their relationship with one another. The fourth edition is even more user friendly and covers all substantive new debates in IR theory and foreign policy analyses."-- T.V. Paul, McGill University"Jackson and Sorensen illuminate the subject with a rare combination of theoretical mastery, empirical argument, and normative insight like no other. The result is a book firmly situated in the world, demonstrating the intrinsically human character of international relations--its successes and its possibilities."--William Bain, University of Wales, Aberystwyth"Exemplary. . . pitched perfectly to promote student understanding."--John M. Hobson, University of Sheffield

From my perspective as a person who has had to deal with international relations issues in government work and a bit in an academic setting, I found this book tremendously informative, and more importantly, very readable.

It does more than simply present the major IR theories in an encyclopedic way. This book also adds a few different dimensions and considerations to each approach. It has a relatively neutral approach, and that makes it a bit dry when compared with IR articles written by the “giants” of IR who write with intensity and (sometimes) passion either attacking others or defending their own approaches; but this text is neither stuffy nor dense.

Jackson-Sorensen’s “Introduction to International Relations” provides useful thought-provoking questions as well as some extra references for each chapter. However, the surprising bonus was that the authors have a complementary resources webpage on their publisher’s website. This webpage has some very useful case studies, electronic flashcards (online, or IPad/Nano) and other links to permit readers/ students/ instructors to dive deeper into the subject.

It is a fine book to read for anyone interested in gaining a theoretical appreciation or overview of IR, but it is also very handy text and useful resource for instructors of basic or intro IR as well.
