Summary

Thoroughly updated to cover world affairs through 2009, International Relations are praised for being the most current and comprehensive introduction to international relations theory as well as security, economic, and global issues. From war and trade to human rights and the environment, this survey explores relations among states and the influence of transnational actors and events. Applying a broad range of theoretical perspectives to show students how to analyze current events, International Relations offers the best tools for thinking critically about what is happening in the world today.

International Relations has long been the best introduction to the field. It perfectly balances different theoretical approaches to international politics, theoretical and empirical material, and major topics like international security, international political economy, and global social issues. In particular, its coverage of war, civil conflict, and terrorism is outstanding and especially relevant today.”-Andrew Kydd, University of Wisconsin Madison

“Students have realized that women as factory workers, as peace activists, as political thinkers need to be discussed in IR courses. Goldstein and Pevehouse’s up to the minute, engaging introductory text responds to this need.”-Cynthia Enloe, Clark University

“Goldstein and Pevehouse have uniquely written a text that is a perfect fit not just for introductory international relations courses but also for multidisciplinary international studies courses. Better than anyone, they sensibly combine political science, economics, history, and more with plenty of illustrative regional examples to help my students build a comprehensive picture of the world.”-David Bearce, University of Colorado Boulder

Nice work! June 28, 2011

This textbook is very straightforward and ideal for an introductory Political Science course at the college level. If you desire to learn about the current governing bodies in the world today, this textbook will provide the basis for a life-long study. I highly recommend it for anyone who is thinking of pursuing International Relations at the post secondary level, but would like to learn more about the actual topic first. I received the textbook way before the estimated arrival time and it was exactly in the condition it was advertised as. Thank you.
