What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“This is a superb survey of one of the leading research communities in the international relations field. It includes analyses of all the right topics by all the right people. The Guide is an invaluable resource both for the classroom and for the cutting-edge scholar.”—Jack S. Levy, Rutgers University

“Every once in a very long while a volume comes along that transforms our understanding of international politics. This is such a volume. It offers a comprehensive, clear, and compelling account of the scientific progress made over the past few decades thanks to SSIP. This is a volume that belongs on the syllabus of every introductory undergraduate and every introductory graduate-level course on international relations. It is a truly important book for anyone at any level who wants to understand international affairs.”—Bruce Bueno de Mesquita, NYU and Senior Fellow Emeritus, the Hoover Institution, Stanford University
