Introduction to International Relations : Theory and Practice, Paperback / softback Book

Introduction to International Relations : Theory and Practice Paperback / softback


How do we understand international relations in a globalized world?

This clear and concise text takes as its starting point the theoretical frameworks that are the foundation of current IR.

Joyce P. Kaufman explains and contextualizes the traditional theories, highlighting both their strengths and weaknesses.

Her levels-of-analysis approach provides students with the basic tools for a more inclusive understanding of international politics by not forcing them to choose between competing theories.

Instead, in a refreshing alternative to most of the current introductory-level texts, the book allows readers to view the globe as a complex place of multiple actors facing multiple issues.

It concludes with cases of current events that will help students apply theories to real-world issues.
