The perfect supplement to Essentials of International Relations, this superb collection expands upon Mingst's text and complements all the books in the series. Designed to bridge the textbook and the series, Essential Readings in World Politics follows an efficient organizing principle: each chapter includes one seminal reading, a pair of readings that take up the same topic from two different perspectives (feminist, Marxist, realist, etc.), and one primary document. Headnotes help students make connections between the series and the readings, creating an integrated system for studying world politics.
