Reviews of previous editions: "An outstanding textbook."--Andreas Bieler, University of Birmingham"One of the most useful books on International Relations theory to have appeared in recent years...a most valuable addition to the burgeoning literature in the field."--Chris Brown, Political Studies "A very fine book, bringing together a group of contributors who describe the major currents of International Relations theory. Beginning with 'liberal internationalism' and finishing up with 'green politics', the book is highly readable and illuminating for a subject not everyone finds accessible."--RUSI Journal
