Editorial Reviews

Review


Reviews of previous editions:

"An outstanding textbook."

- Andreas Bieler, University of Birmingham

"One of the most useful books on International Relations theory to have appeared in recent years...a most valuable addition to the burgeoning literature in the field."

- Chris Brown, Political Studies

"A very fine book, bringing together a group of contributors who describe the major currents of International Relations theory. Beginning with 'liberal internationalism' and finishing up with 'green politics', the book is highly readable and illuminating for a subject not everyone finds accessible."

- RUSI Journal

Format: Paperback
I read this book AFTER having read International Relations Theory: A Critical Introduction, Third Edition, and I have to say that I was much better prepared. This text is weighty but not difficult to comprehend. I had to read it at a much slower pace and with more attention to what the authors were saying about each theory, but I like this book a lot. The bibliography is invaluable, too, and I will be reading many of the sources that the authors cite in their explanations of the various theories. Some of the writers are obviously better at explaining concepts than others (I won't name names), but all of the chapters have been useful and left me with a clear understanding of the theory discussed, and this book is really helping me to get up to speed on IR theory fast.

My only complaint is that there isn't a glossary to explain certain terms that aren't always easily found in the dictionary and require some cobbling of the web to figure out. This isn't a bad thing really, but I think that it would be a time saver if more introductory texts included glossaries that explained what terms meant in the context that they are used.

Overall, this is an excellent resource.

It is a very useful book from a certain point of view. A lot of truths seem only to hold true from a certain point of view.
