"The chapters are lucidly organized, with relevant and useful pedagogy. Each device is extremely useful, and will greatly aid students in understanding and appreciating the materials. I particularly like the controversy boxes which are thoughtfully done, the "world wide web" features, and the very timely literature presented on the further readings sections. I feel that the controversy boxes offer great starting points for student class presentations and debates."
"Chapter 5 [now chapter 6] is an interesting chapter in that it focuses on non-state actors in the interstate system, an analysis that you don't usually see in international relations/ world politics textbooks."
"This is a great text for teaching the Intro course. It covers all the major areas and gives students enough to do additional work later. The support material is very helpful if you are just starting. You are also not limited and can use this with most readers and ancillary texts. Strengths: a.) Clearly written with minimal jargon; b.) Doesn't overload the book with superfluous matter. Figures, tables and maps relate directly to the text; c.) Very up to date. Regular revisions have meant that the book has captured recent advances in the field."
