Essentials of International Relations
Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I have serious issues with this text book; highly biased. Jun 29, Victoria rated it really liked it. For the Seventh Edition. Great intro to IR and some theories. This book covers every main point of International politics and uses real world examples to explain the concepts covered in the book.
This book provides a balanced view of international politics, criticizing the flaws in the international system and commending its achievements equally throughout the book. Essentialw Essentials of International Politics focuses mainly on the four schools of thought: Realism, Liberalism, Radicalism, and Constructivism. The author shows how the different schools internaional though This book covers every main point of International politics and uses real world examples to explain the concepts covered in the book.
The author shows how the different schools of thought view something like state sovereignty or the size of the roles different international actors play. The author covers everything from the world economy and war to humanitarian intervention and how the individual is viewed in the international system.
It is a good source for learning the basics of international politics in the world today. As I have said, this is a great book for learning the basics of international relations, however it is not recommended that reltaions read whole chapters in under two hours. When reading this you should take time to understand the full concepts before moving onto the gelations chapter or paragraph because every concept and acronym comes back at some point in relatons book.
This books has great basic knowledge but it is also helpful to do simulations or have discussions with others in minfst to experience how these principals can be used in real life. This book encourages forming your own opinions and the author does an excellent job of making it as unbiased as possible. I would recommend eszentials book to anyone with an interest in international relations.
This book was a textbook for an International Studies course I took. It makes an excellent primer for someone looking to learn the fundamentals of international relations theory.
Relqtions found it to be very informative, but also easy to read, unlike many textbooks. The author also makes a point to show how international relations can be relevant to the reader’s daily life, which is a nice touch.
This book is not one to read if you’re looking for detailed analysis of specific events. It uses case studie This book was a textbook for an International Studies course I took. It uses case studies to serve as an example of the theory that it’s presenting, certainly, but that’s really all they’re there for: An excellent book for someone considering studying international relations or who’s new to the field and wants an easily accessable introduction.
Definitely covers the basics of international relations, so it’s a good introduction if you’ve never had any experience. My main problem is that my professor pointed out several things that the book got wrong and presented as fact, so it’s misleading.
It also is organized in a weird way: Jul 27, MM rated it really liked it. The book was a primer through and through. It was written in such a way that beginners would understand the basic things in IR, if you’re looking for a descriptive and elaborate book this one’s not for you. So, I’ll be eternally gratefull to this book, ’cause know and theach more than my actual teacher.
