This work is an introduction to the core concepts of international relations. The author presents the basic tools of analysis - the individual, the state and the international system - and shows how the primary schools of thought - liberalism, realism and Marxism - use these tools to evaluate interactions between nations, paying particular attention to security and economic issues. Theory is brought to life with examples and case studies.
