Product Description

Review

"This work is an outstanding introduction to the theory of international relations. The authors cover a wide range of theoretical approaches and do so in a probing yet accessible manner. With its exemplary balance and clarity, the book deserves a wide readership among students young and old."--David Hendrickson, Colorado College"Jackson and Sorensen's Introduction to International Relations has already become a classic, and the fourth edition of their text only confirms their accomplishment as thought-provoking, exceptionally clear in expression, and complete and balanced in their treatment of a contentious field."-- David Clinton, Baylor University"A unique and highly valuable textbook that offers students succinct understandings of diverse international relations theories and their relationship with one another. The fourth edition is even more user friendly and covers all substantive new debates in IR theory and foreign policy analyses."-- T.V. Paul, McGill University"Jackson and Sorensen illuminate the subject with a rare combination of theoretical mastery, empirical argument, and normative insight like no other. The result is a book firmly situated in the world, demonstrating the intrinsically human character of international relations--its successes and its possibilities."--William Bain, University of Wales, Aberystwyth"Exemplary. . . pitched perfectly to promote student understanding."--John M. Hobson, University of Sheffield

Format: Paperback
I liked this book because it explained the various theories and traditions that make up the discipline of International Relations. It covers Realism, Liberalism, and International Society and also discusses issues within the International Political Economy. The book examines the theories strong sides, weaknesses and limitations. It also shows how the theories sometimes overlap. In this respect, it forms a solid foundation for anyone interested in the pursuit if IR studies. I especially liked the book as it gives illustrations and recent case studies. This makes it interesting and demonstrates how the theories behind world politics are linked to actual events. It brings the theories to life. Jackson and Sorensen have included boxes and charts to make show comparisons and highlight key elements. It is also a useful text for students because each chapter contains a list of key points and study questions that help focus the main points of the chapter. Furthermore, there is a guide to further reading. This enables the reader to go beyond the basic issues, do further research and obtain an in-depth knowledge. I would highly recommend this as a basic text for anyone who is interested in current affairs and way our global political system works.

By A Customer on 7 Oct. 2001
Format: Paperback
This was the first book I had bought on the subject of International Relations, or IR. I found it to be an indispensable resource for those who are starting out in the area of IR--the key concepts are explained accurately, and the whole set-up of the book is user friendly.
At the end of each chapter (of which there are eight), the reader can attempt several relevent questions, designed to enforce what you've just read. This is, I beleive, a great way to engrain the knowledge into one's mind, helping the reader to retain what they have learnt.
If you're interested in IR, but have been scared by the 1000 page books on the subject, don't waste any more time: buy this books ASAP.

For all those that are studying IR this is an important piece of literature to have. Relatively un-biased and organized in such a way that it is easy to understand, it's definitely a must-read.
Good for references as well.
