Some chapters are better than others, obviously (the chapter on institutionalism/neoliberalism and constructivism were two of the better chapters). Most of the explanations are balanced so that you get a practical approach to the value of each theory as well as a healthy dose of criticism. I liked how each chapter is very well-cited so there are lots of avenues for further research. This book helped me a lot in preparing my thesis and for my comprehensive exam a couple of weeks ago. If you are looking for a source that captures the tenets of all the theories in a balanced and constructive way, I recommend this book.

This is a very good summary of the field of international relations. Better than many other IR readers and less expensive in paperback. A few sections are starting to show their age a bit, but it is good enough and comprehensive enough that I assign it to my intro IR students.
