About this book


A concise introductory text for students approaching the subject for the first time. Clear and accessible but sophisticated and penetrating, the book takes as its starting point the main theoretical approaches which have been adopted historically and shows how these can be applied to understanding the central questions of war and peace, poverty and wealth, economic management and global governance confronting the world today. It concludes by reviewing new agendas in the post-Cold War period and pulling together elements of a theoretical synthesis. Clear and accessible but sophisticated and penetrating, the book will be essential reading for all students of International Relations.
