  • A consistent learning framework-Ideas, Arguments, and Contexts and Applications-guides students through the material
  • A critical-thinking approach is introduced in chapter 1 and reinforced throughout the text in "Debate" boxes, "Case in Point" features, and chapter-ending questions
  • Each chapter incorporates historical material throughout and ends with an extended case study, "The Uses of History," featuring in-depth discussions of important developments from the past several decades (such as the Cuban missile crisis, "misperceptions and realities" in the war on terror, and "celebrity interventions" in humanitarian issues)
  • Learning objectives, "Check Your Knowledge" questions, and "Visual Reviews" help students find and retain key information
  • A unique Conclusion, "Forecasting the World of 2030," serves as a capstone exercise and includes discussion and writing prompts to help students synthesize what they've learned
  • An appendix on IR careers provides descriptions of the major career categories as well as resources for finding positions in the field of IR

   
Using a three-part framework of Ideas, Arguments, and Contexts and Applications, International Relations, Second Edition, shows students how to think critically about issues and current events in world politics. Each chapter first describes key concepts and developments in the field (Ideas), then presents the main theoretical and analytical approaches (Arguments), and finally applies the main theories and approaches within the individual, state, and global contexts (Contexts and Applications). Historical information is woven throughout the text, and every chapter ends with an extended case study ( "The Uses of History ") that demonstrates how what we have learned from the past can influence our future actions. Three full chapters on key approaches—realism (chapter 2), liberalism (chapter 3), and constructivism and other alternative views (chapter 4)—introduce students to a broad spectrum of approaches, and each chapter integrates discussions of relevant theories and levels of analysis. Visual Reviews at the end of each chapter not only recap key points but include Critical Thinking questions that reflect the chapter learning objectives.

著者について: 

Eric Shiraev, Professor, George Mason University, and Vladislav Zubok, Professor, Temple University
  
Eric Shiraev is a professor and senior research associate at the Center for Global Studies in the Department of Public and International Affairs at George Mason University. Recent works include Cross-Cultural Psychology, 4e with Pearson (2009); People and Their Opinions with Pearson (2005); The Soviet Union: Internal and External Perspectives on Soviet Society with Palgrave (2008) and Counting Every Vote: The Most Contentious Elections In American History with Potomac Books (2008).
  
Vlad Zubok is professor of History at the London School of Economics. Recent works include Zhivago's Children: The Last Russian Intelligentsia with Harvard University Press (2009); A Failed Empire: The Soviet Union in the Cold War from Stalin to Gorbachev with University of North Carolina Press (2007) and Anti-Americanism in Russia: From Stalin to Putin (with Eric Shiraev) with Palgrave Press (2000).

The text does an excellent job of grabbing the reader's attention with appropriate and interesting opening case narratives. It is also very well organized and includes clear and concise learning objectives as well as the more common attention to consistent application of theories and analytical concepts and tools... The consistency of presentation/organization around theoretical paradigms and levels of analysis, in addition to the consistent inclusion of "learning goals" is the primary strength. -Juliann Emmons Allison, UC Riverside
   
I believe Shiraev and Zubok, unlike the authors of most IR textbooks, made a wise decision to adopt a consistent chapter outline, which focuses on three basic and vitally important questions. This creative and unique approach helps to focus students' minds on the big picture, which is how to apply the different theoretical perspectives to reality... Shiraev and Zubok have done an exemplary job of applying IR theories to historical and contemporary reality, as well as applying IR theories in the individual, state, and global contexts. -Mir Zohair Husain, University of South Alabama
   
The text differentiates itself from others with the chapter learning objectives, which serves as a guidepost for the various discussions and lessons packed into each chapter. -Richard Aidoo, Coastal Carolina University
    
What makes this book different is its shorter focus and to-the-point perspective. It does not spend a lot of pages on ancillary empirical questions. It gets to the heart of the theoretical issues and brings in enough empirics to make the points required, but no more. This is a good thing... Lots of empirical examples to help provide context as to what IR is and how it is studied is helpful...I thought it subtly introduced a lot of important theoretical ideas without being bogged down in theoretical language that may be difficult for students to understand. -Marcus Holmes, College of William & Mary
   

Conceptually rich textbook with consistent structure bridging theory and empirical world. Not many textbooks have such consistent structure and rich conceptual content. -Mariam Dekanozishvili, Coastal Carolina University
