This study guide is designed to accompany the second edition of Walter C. Clemens, Jr.'s, Dynamics of International Relations and includes an introductory chapter by the author of the text. It is focused on one important aspect of studying international relations: doing research and writing it up, whether in the form of a book review, a bibliographic essay, or a full-scale term paper. The second part of the study guide is devoted to the various challenges of writing with sources, and is a valuable reference for many other college courses besides international relations.
