Product Description


“The most important insight that might help us explain the dynamic of the current world order lie in the concept of interdependence, pioneered and systematically explored by Robert Keohane and Joseph Nye in Power and Interdependence, the classic work of international relations theory you are about to read....Keohane and Nye took these assorted ideas and put forward a powerful, coherent theory, operating at the level of the international system, and thus with great explanatory power.”–Fareed Zakaria

From the Back Cover

Introduction to International Relations is the International Relations student's passport to success. Based on many years of active research and teaching it takes the discipline's most difficult aspects and makes them accessible and interesting. Armed with this insight, the 'real world' of news and current affairs takes on new meaning.

Each chapter builds up an understanding of the different ways of looking at the world. From liberalism through to green politics, it examines how different perspectives have developed, who has influenced them the most, and what position they represent on key issues in global politics. 

The clarity of presentation allows students to rapidly develop a theoretical framework and to apply this knowledge widely; both as a way of understanding more advanced theoretical texts and events in world politics.

Key to the book:

-         A comprehensive guide to International Relations theory for undergraduates

-         A lively and student-friendly approach that helps readers to compare and contrast theoretical perspectives

-         An incisive and easy-to-understand description of theory

-         Difficult jargon explained and demystified

-         Illustrated with examples form world events

-         Clear and economical coverage of complex and crucial material



Jill Steans and Lloyd Pettiford are both experienced teachers and researchers in international relations. Jill is currently Senior Lecturer in International Relations at Birmingham University. Lloyd is Associate Dean of the School of Arts, Communication and Culture at Nottingham Trent University.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A must for International Relations students, and also for those in International Security Doctorate Programs, which is my case. A long time honoured master piece, that is periodically updated by the authors. Very easy to read and very clear exposition of essential concepts, though the size of letters make it a little bit difficult for those using specs!
