Editorial Reviews

Review

"It fits quite nicely with my approach to the course, has very good coverage of all the big topics, is written in a very accessible style, and seems to appeal to the students."

"This is an ideal textbook for introducing international politics to undergraduate students. It is well organized and its writing style is accessible."

"These are, taken together, the best set of tables and figures I have seen in an intro IR text."

I had the misfortune of taking International Relations taught by one of the writers of this book, Harvey Starr. Normally, I get a textbook and may never even have to open, since most teachers only test on material from the lectures. However, since the author was my teacher, I read this book and am thankful that I did.
The book does a good job of explaining many concepts related to international relations. At times the material is pretty boring, but what can you expect from a textbook? One thing that I didn't like about the book was that there isn't really a chapter summary at the end of each chapter. Also, the terms that are presented in bold face throughout the book, aren't all found in either the glossary or the ends of the chapters. You have to read every page of every chapter if you want to find all of the important terms. Unless you check out the companion website. This is where both chapter summaries and key terms can be found without all the extra verbiage that the chapters contain. The companion website basically made the textbook pointless.
Overall, I would give the textbook a rating of two and the companion website a rating of four, so I'll go with the middle ground and give this product a three. Before you buy the book you might want to do a web search for the companion website, since you don't need any key to access it. You could probably just save your hundred (or more) dollars and still get all of the important information that this book presents.
