Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Consistently well-written and accessible, as well as being sophisticated ... highly recommended for undergraduate students, MA teachers, and interested lay readers.' International Affairs

‘This is an excellent volume. The authors have gone to considerable length to impose a clear structure on a most wide-ranging and complex set of materials. The result is one of the most innovative and useful volumes published on global politics in recent years. It is a judicious mix of empirical coverage and theoretical sophistication, making it a truly well-integrated textbook. It will be widely appreciated by all those who teach and study international relations. – Steve Smith, Professor of International Relations, University of East Anglia

‘… highly recommended for students and teachers, and also for interested lay readers.’ – Political Studies
