Editorial Reviews

Praise for the third edition:"An ideal introduction to humanities and social science views of the world and the international issues that confront us."—Heidi Hobbs, North Carolina State University"There are numerous international politics books but this is the only one that I have found that really focuses on international studies in a distinct manner. What is particularly important is the first five chapters that help define the disciplines from which International Studies draws. It also does an admirable job of touring students throughout the world. Many of my students cannot believe how much territory we have covered by the end of the semester."—Christopher Scholl, California State University, Channel Islands"International Studies: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Global Issues stands out as a major contribution to the methodology of International Studies . . . This book should be compulsory reading for all researchers and students in International Studies."—Journal of the Historical Society of NigeriaPraise for prior editions:
