Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

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

“A thoroughly engaging and comprehensive textbook, Goldstein and Pevehouse successfully guide students in applying IR theory to real world events. The authors do a masterful job of explaining world affairs and of developing students’ ability to evaluate contemporary international policy debates.”–Jelena Subotic, Georgia State University
