?“This text gives the student everything they would need in an intro to global politics course. It is well-written and covers all the concepts, theories and topics well.”
“The perfect undergraduate text for international relations. Scientific in its approach, accessible writing, and thoughtful in its discussion.”
“This book is well-written and full of useful features (applying theory, critical thinking, current issues...). It is also very comprehensive for its relatively brief length.”
“The major strengths are using the three themes (anarchy, diversity, and complexity) to guide the discussion in each chapter. This makes for a great way to organize lectures and helps students remember those points.”
“This book is well organized and very well written with good choices of key international relations theories, topics and cases.”
“I like the blending of theory and practice and the use of contemporary examples that my students are more likely to be familiar with; many students come into the course with very little knowledge of what's going on outside of the United States, so focusing on the US as an actor may help them understand what is going on better.”
“The book is very accessible for an intro textbook; I can see its approach being welcomed by students who are 'theory averse'; it is a gentle introduction to the discipline without throwing students into the deep end of theory, which often alienates them for the first part of a course. It is fairly current in its examples. The writing style is not laden with jargon, and yet it does not compromise on key concepts… I think it has honed in on the conceptual apparatus of the mainstream theories well; its 'empirics' are rather straightforward and probably quite graspable for intro students.”
