What does it mean to adopt a realist, or a world systems, or a green approach to international relations? Does the plethora of “isms” have any relevance to the real world of global politics and policymaking? Making Sense of International Relations Theory addresses these questions by illustrating theories in action. With the 2003 invasion of Iraq by the US and its allies as a common point of reference, each contributor presents a particular framework for interpreting world affairs. This structure offers students tangible examples of how theory is used in practice and at the same time highlights the explanatory differences among theories. Incorporating extensive introductory sections, the book is uniquely designed to explore alternative ways of understanding current events―to assist students in making sense of, as well as with, IR theory.

About the Author:

Jennifer Sterling-Folker is professor of political science at the University of Connecticut. Her publications include Theories of International Cooperation and the Primacy of Anarchy: Explaining U.S. International Monetary Policymaking After Bretton Woods.

Review:

[A] masterful discussion and application of the major theoretical approaches in international relations.... A detailed reading should leave the student not only with a thorough knowledge of the field of international relations (IR) but with a deep appreciation for its breadth and diversity.... A wide range of readers will profit from this well written, concise, and serious volume. (Steven E. Lobell, International Studies Review)

A highly inventive textbook that showcases leading theoretical approaches to IR.... will help students of IR to see the value of theory and to appreciate the very significant differences among and within these approaches. (Amy E. Eckert, Millennium)

A great idea and a great teaching tool! This comprehensive account is beautifully executed, allowing us to 'see' a single case from a range of theoretical perspectives. It is an important demonstration that theoretical diversity illuminates rather than confuses. (Yale H. Ferguson, Rutgers University)
