International Relations for life.
class text book.it's dense but great supplemental material to understanding International Relations (IR) Theory. however, I wouldn't say it's intro material--someone who has zip knowledge of IR theory might have a painful time unraveling this one.includes:chart of IR acronymsexplanations of:RealismLiberalism/KantThe English SchoolMarx/MarxismHistorical SociologyCritical TheoryPost-StructuralismConstructivismFeminismGreen PoliticsInternational Political Theory
I found a few chapters (i.e. the ones that covered poststructuralism, feminism, green politics, and international political theory) to be revelationary and revolutionary. Other than that, though, I was over reading this book long before I was close to being done. I've read other IR theory books that are much more engaging. However the idea of shedding light on these underrated veins of IR theory is right on. Can't really say I enjoyed this book, and I look forward to selling it on Amazon. :P
Some of the more interesting schools of thought are missing from this edition, such as post-colonialism. Some of the articles are written in rather superfluous language, and many of them have big, redundant chunks of writing.
This book was the prescribed text for a course I did last year for my International Relations Masters. It’s very readable for a text book, so needless to say, I read it, and quite enjoyed it. It gives a good summary of a variety of theories – I found the strong focus on the international relations aspect very helpful, so as not to confuse in my head these theories in their sociological context (where relevant!). I have come back to this book a variety of times while writing subsequent assignment...
As others have noted, the chief value in this book is its treatment of less dominant approaches such as critical theory, feminism and green theory. These are well-written and researched and throw down significant challenges to the dominant approaches, which it would have been nice to hear responses to. Overall however it declines to draw any weighty conclusions or offer a synthesis regarding the discipline or its object of study from the various perspectives it surveys. Some will no doubt find t...
Ini buku yang menemani usia saya berkuliah di Hubungan Internasional. Sebagai pengantar teoritik, simulasi alat penelitian, dan referensi untuk melangkah lebih jauh ke teori yang diminati.Kabar bahagianya, buku ini telah diterjemahkan ke Bahasa Indonesia.
This is a valuable resource, primarily because most of the chapters are devoted to perspectives outside of mainstream IR theory (critical theory, postmodernism, feminism, et al.), although it covers neo-realism and neo-liberalism as well.
As somehow an outsider to the field, trying to form a certain comprehension of IR theories, i took on the endeavor of reading several books about the topic. This book is a collective work, containing 10 chapters by several authors. First remark: the difference in style between the several authors is very obvious. While some are able to present their ideas in rather intelligible sentences, others hide behind undecipherable formulas (mostly, the second half of the last chapter). An other remark re...
For some reason Goodreads doesn't have the Fifth Edition listed, but the Third. Well the review is based on the Fifth Edition which is fine. The book has a lot going on with it, and sometimes it seems that the authors are just writing to strut on how intelligent they are. The points of the chapters are kind of not there and I found myself wanting to DNF this book but didn't because my Dad sent this copy to me and I was able to push through it. It has some good topics so all is not lost with this...
Buku ini merupakan bacaan wajib bagi para calon sarjana maupun sarjana HI mengingat di dalamnya banyak sekali kandungan teori yang menjadi bahan bagi kita untuk memahami perdebatan yang membangun subjek ini. Mulai dari realisme, liberalisme, marxisme, perspektif neo, posmodernisme, strukturalisme, teori kritis, feminisme, hingga teori hijau. Penjabarannya memang cukup rumit sehingga butuh konsentrasi penuh dalam membaca buku ini. Alasan saya memberi bintang tiga, saya kurang begitu suka dengan v...
موسوعي، غير أنه مُعاب بشبه التغييب لنقاش الحوارات الأربعة ومعركة المناهج، وبالطبع -وهذا راجع لتاريخ وضعه- يوجد غياب للحوار الخامس في الحقل، والمتعلق باستخدام نظرية الكم من قبل أمثال وينت.الترجمة محترمة صحيحة ليست مبعثرة، لكنها ثقيلة الظل كذلك إلى حد ما. مع التنبيه لأجنبية الفصل الأخير في ترجمته عن باقي الكتاب، وأكاد أوقن أن الدكتور صفار لم يترجمه، فالأغلاط كثيرة.وهو، في العربية، أحد كتابين من الواجب على دارس العلاقات الدولية أن يكون حافظًا لهما.
This book would get five stars if it wasn’t for the fact that I need to use a dictionary to understand it and that it makes my brain go soft because the sentences are so complicated. It’s a shame because the content is so good but very inaccessible.
I want to read this book
Every student of IR should know this book by heart
Solid intro to IR. Painfully lacking in the chapters on realism
It’s laughable how little the viewpoints presented in this book have to do with global relationships that you can find described in books dealing with diplomatic history or current affairs. I don’t know if this particular book is so bad, or is the whole academic discipline of international relations in such a poor shape. Most of the essays are moralistic polemics about all kinds of injustices and inequalities that exist in the world. They are also poorly structured and they don’t even give you a...
I assigned this textbook for my spring 2011 master's seminar on international relations. I've frequently used prior editions, though this version includes both updated and new chapters. The additions focus on Historical Sociology and International Political Theory. My students are typically frustrated by the abstraction and breadth of the field reflected in this book's offerings.
Since this was required reading for me, I do have some mixed feelings. On one had, it was great at teaching me these theories.On the other, it seemed to repeat itself far too often & seemed unnecessarily wordy at times.
Comprehensive overview of international relations.
its a valuable book for the research
Its on the theories of international relations
Çeviri hayal kırıklığı
i wanna read this book now and i will stay blessed forever....
