"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
