Review:

"In a crowded field, Henry Nau's textbook stands out in presenting theoretical material in a nuanced and accessible manner while at the same time offering comprehensive coverage of the major issues in world politics. The book succeeds brilliantly in distilling cutting-edge scholarship in a way that is readily accessible to all undergraduates who are exposed to the study of international relations for the first time." --- Peter J. Katzenstein, Cornell University

"Perspectives on International Relations provides a lucid, multidimensional introduction to the intriguing ambiguities of world politics. It should help students not only to understand contemporary international relations, but to develop their own interpretations to guide their future understanding of this rapidly changing subject." --- Robert O. Keohane, Princeton University

"Henry Nau has produced an outstanding textbook. Its great virtue is that it neatly and smartly employs the leading international relations theories to explain key historical events and to evaluate contemporary policy debates. Students will learn much from this nicely crafted book." - --John J. Mearsheimer, University of Chicago
