Product description

From the Back Cover


Introduction to International Relations Theory offers students of International Relations a comprehensive introduction to the theoretical analysis of today’s world.

From liberalism to postmodernism, each chapter examines a different theoretical perspective, tracing its historical and intellectual development, identifying its key advocates, and exploring the position each perspective represents on key contemporary issues, as well as the criticisms which have arisen from other approaches.

The clarity of presentation and accessible language enable students to develop an understanding of the nature and value of theoretical analysis as well as the ability to apply theoretical frameworks to aid an understanding of world events, situations and negotiations.

Suitable for undergraduates studying international relations and international relations theory.

  • Boxed examples from world events
  • Biographies of key thinkers
  • Boxed examples from film and popular media
  • Accessible definitions of key concepts
