Editorial Reviews

"This is a comprehensive analysis of contemporary developments in global politics, written by a team of experts in the various fields. It makes its subject-matter accessible to undergraduates without disguising the complexity of the concepts and issues it explores. It covers both the theoriesand the practice of international relations in a way which will satisfy the requirements of all introductory courses, while laying the foundations for specialised study at more advanced levels." --Mark Garnett, Senior Lecturer, Lancaster University
