Summary

Even in the best of times, political debate about world events is rife with polarizing disagreement. In an increasingly wired world, how can we help students separate fact from opinion, to parse arguments and apply reasoned analysis? With its even-handed presentation of realism, liberalism, constructivism, and critical theory and comprehensive coverage of all of the major concepts in IR, Perspectives on International Relations gives students the set of analytical tools they need to become effective readers and thinkers about the world's most urgent issues.

Making sense of today's world events means being able to read beyond the headlines.

Perspectives on International Relations combines comprehensive coverage with class-tested, fully integrated critical thinking pedagogy to teach students how to ''read between the lines.''

These are features your students won't skip-they're too useful and engaging:

  • ''Using the Perspectives to Read Between the Lines'' boxes model critical reading, showing students how to identify and think through the viewpoints playing out in contemporary debates;
  • ''Perspectives and Levels of Analysis'' tables help students track the ways each perspective interprets events from the individual, domestic, and systemic levels;
  • ''Parallel Timelines'' exhibit how the perspectives preference different events, from the origins of WWI to the current era;
  • ''Spotlight'' icons highlight when key concepts in IR (e.g., alliances, anarchy, balance of power) are at work in historical or contemporary cases;
  • ''Causal Arrow'' icons point to when a perspective is emphasized over others in explaining the cause of an event; and
  • A marginal glossary defines every key term in the book.

What's New?

The book's distinctive approach has been sharpened, with refined discussion of the major viewpoints in IR. Chapte
