Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An introduction to a range of theoretical traditions reflecting contemporary international relations conventions based on the idea that each can be categorized as either explanatory (making sense of global politics) or constitutive (concerned with the process of theorizing). 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. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
