Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Books that get to a fifth edition are clearly doing something right. It is no mystery why this excellent text continues to be used around the world. Comprehensive coverage, impressive depth of analysis and beautifully written chapters all combine to make it highly recommended for both undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Courses that do not use it are missing out, so are their students!' – Colin Wight, University of Sydney, Australia
 
Reviews of previous editions:

'An outstanding textbook.'
- Andreas Bieler, University of Birmingham

'One of the most useful books on International Relations theory to have appeared in recent years...a most valuable addition to the burgeoning literature in the field.'
- Chris Brown, Political Studies

'A very fine book, bringing together a group of contributors who describe the major currents of International Relations theory. Beginning with 'liberal internationalism' and finishing up with 'green politics', the book is highly readable and illuminating for a subject not everyone finds accessible.'
- RUSI Jourbanal

'...and excellent overview of the main theories of international politics and the key debates...provides a careful consideration of the central paradigms...will enrich the intellectual...' Forum: Centre for Citizenship, Development and Human Rights

The five contributing international relations scholars evaluate the dominant perspectives of liberal internationalism, realism, neo-realism, rationalism Marxism, critical and postmodern theory, and assess the impact of feminism and politics on the field.
