Leading scholars in the field introduce readers to the history, theory, structures, and key issues in IR, providing students with an ideal introduction and a constant guide throughout their studies.
it's just a brief introduction of what happened during the process of political globalization. Although before ordering this book i had known it a textbook, i also felt a little disappointed when i recived it, because it just raises many questions and remains to be answered on your own, or you can refer to other books or articles that are listed at the end of each section. Sincerely it can only be used in class with the help of your teachers, even though the questions that raised are admirable. I feel very sorry to give only 3 stars.

All students must develop critical ability to interpret a complex, globalized world. Knowing facts and interpreting them in an autonomous way are desirable skills for who wants to act in areas regarding with world affairs. This book offers excellent tools to achieve such goals! More than one vision about the same subject permits readers to form his own opinion; case studies, tables and key points notations help remarking main ideas; extra questions stimulate students to think about readings. All of that and much more make this a fantastic book!

I'm still in the middle of the course for which I ordered this text but it is excellent. The subject matter in itself is dense, as are parts of the text. However, explanatory sections do an excellent job of dissecting some of the more difficult material. Sourcing, objectivity and organization are superb.

- axel_jones

soldi spesi inutilmente, non è coerente, i capitoli non sono connessi tra di loro, gli argomenti non vanno quasi mai conclusi. Usato come libro di testo dal''università....non so cosa ci vedono i professori gli studenti manco lo aprono

- judson_nguyen

Libro introvabile nelle librerie e poco disponibile anche online. Acquisto dovuto a studi universitari di relazioni internazionali, consigliato a chi possiede già una buona conoscenza dell'inglese. Ben fatto, suddiviso per argomenti e schematico per essere adatto agli studenti

Fabulous analysis and perspective. Fair. Balanced.
