The Globalization of World Politics is one of the most commercially successful textbooks published by Oxford University Press, and with even a quick flick through it is not difficult to see why. It aims to combine history, theory, structure and process with contemporary international issues, and it does so in a way that is clearly presented. This is an ideal text for students who are new to the subject, but it also remains a key resource as students continue in their studies. Although the book's aim is introductory, its breadth and depth make it a worthwhile investment. Ariene Caloia, third-year politics student, Royal Holloway, University of London I have had very, very good experiences with your "IR bible" [The Globalization of World Politics by Baylis et al] as well as Strategy in the Contemporary World. I wish all my books were this informative - extremely well written, clearly structured and of high quality! Everywhere I go, I take these books with me. Keep up the good work! Romain Markwalder, Postgraduate student, King's College, London
