Okay book - great condition 23 Jan 2014
By burg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had to read this book for a class and I remember most of it was pretty okay, but some of the concepts didn't quite make sense. Some viewpoints were seemed a bit too biased but there were some points that were pretty interesting. I did however get this book in great condition!
Great Text 29 Oct 2013
By Megan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like this text because it goes in great depth without being overbearing. There are plenty of details, but the author does a great job at explaining international organizations in terms anyone can understand. There are examples that could be updated in a newer version, and some chapters are quite lengthy, but other than that the book is fantastic.

too much minutia and disorganized 23 Aug 2007
By hgptraveler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It seems as though there are details on every single international organization there is - no matter how boring.

It seemed as though I had to search across many chapters for information that would have been better packaged together.

I really enjoy international politics but didn't really care for this text.

Bible for International Organization Entrance 24 Aug 2007
By Yong S. Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is about International Organizations as we see from the title. It organize all kinds of actors - from international organizations to civil society or NGOs. I have never seen a book like this which is well-organized. For example, it have highlighted headings and sub-headings, easily understandable boxes (tables and figures) and finally, suggested further reading is also helpful part of this book and make it perfect!
Of course, it will not be easy for basic-level students of IO, however, it must have been helpful to them. No pains, no gains! Some students will think it should be like 'google' website - which must be easily searchable through just typing and clicking, but, if you read, this book suggest us with valuable commments in each introductory parts.
Studying only power politics will be concluded with biased knowledge. I highly recommend this book to read.
