Making Sense Of International Relations Theory

Making Sense Of International Relations Theory

Jennifer Sterling-Folker Sterling-Folker
3.7/5 (22 ratings)
What does it mean to adopt a realist, or a world system, or a feminist approach to international relations? Does the plethora of "isms"-liberal-ism and constructivism and postmodernism, to name a just a few-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 case of Kosovo as a common point of reference, each contributor presents a particular framework for interpreting world affairs. This structure offers students tangible examples of the use of varying theories, while illuminating the explanatory differences among them. Incorporating alternative ways of understanding current events -to assist students in making sense of, as well as with, IR Theory.

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