Overview

Edited by noted authors and scholars Joshua Goldstein and Jon Pevehouse, Readings in International Relations pairs writings on international relations theory with writings on current events to help students explore the relationship between concept and application.

Covering the key topics discussed in many international relations courses, this text offers generous excerpts of classic and contemporary theory readings followed by real world examples that support or challenge them. Designed to provide students with a more relevant and critical introduction to the field’s original scholarship, Readings in International Relations not only features broad theoretical and topical diversity, it demonstrates how the field explains and is informed by headlines in the news.
