Review:

Here’s a student’s trusted companion for the introductory course. IR: The Basics lays out in accessible and inviting fashion key concepts, methods, values and choices that face each newcomer to this vital field of enquiry. – Jan Aart Scholte, University of Warwick, UK

The authors of this book have adeptly infused empirical evidence with conceptual clarity. It is subtly perceptive in its judgments, and provides an invaluable introduction to the understanding of international relations. – David Boucher, Professor of Political Theory, Cardiff University, and Adjunct Professor of International Relations, University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia
