I'm taking History and international relations and this book was at the top of my reading list. It is easy to understand, yet very insightful, which is why I find it so great. I tend to shy away from books that use too much boring detail when it comes to understanding a basic concept. Also, the book arrived on time and was in an excellent condition. Plus, the price compared to what they sell it for in our university bookstore is unbeatable for a new copy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Informative and Boring 22 Sept. 2014
By timothy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While incredibly thorough and informative, Issue's In Political Theory is probably the driest text book I've read in college. The writing could not be more boring and disengaged from its audience. Most students reading this will be 18 years old, and most will find it tedious and difficult to get through. The text is hardly broken up between pages to aid the eye in reading from one paragraph to the next. The author uses an extensive vocabulary, seemingly for the sake of wordiness, and to slap the Oxford name on the spine. There are literally no visual aids to assist in the learning process. I do not recommend, and feel sorry for you if your professor chooses this for their curriculum.
