Editorial Reviews

Millennium: Journal of International Studies
An importnat contribution to International Relations scholarship.... will therefore be a useful and welcome addition to courses on methodology in international relations. 2007
Jack S. Levy
International relations scholars continue to produce inconsistent findings that impede scientific progress and have limited impact on policy makers. This volume provides a superb diagnosis of the problems involved and useful recommendations for overcoming them, along with some highly innovative and multi-method approaches to both new and old issues in the study of international relations.
Philip A. Schrodt
This diverse and innovative collection of studies demonstrates that researchers engaged in the systematic study of international politics are continuing, after forty years of effort, to develop new approaches and to address contemporary issues.
