Summary

This brief edition of Goldstein's best-selling International Relations covers the subject comprehensively but more compactly than the long book, giving professors more latitude to use supplementary readings or focus on special topics and interests. Goldstein's Brief Edition offers all the strengths that made the comprehensive text a best-seller: a lively writing style; an abundance of illustrative real-world examples; and superior coverage of theory and international political economy. Completely updated, the Second Edition will continue to be a favorite of both instructors and students.
