The Globalization of World Politics: An Introduction to International Relations
Title: The Globalization of World Politics: An Introduction to International Politics
Author: John Baylis, Steve Smith, Patricia Owens
Thoughtfully broken down into readable chapters by Baylis & Smith's cohorts at the University in Aberystwyth, this book will provide an excellent introduction to traditional perspectives on International Relations as well as more contemporary issues. It will remain especially useful for Social Science students due to its combination of clear and simple structure including key points, discussion/writing questions at the end of each chapter as well as useful bibligraphic suggestions for further reading. The only shortcoming is that it needs to be revised to include a more thorough analysis of recent events such as the anti-WTO movement and issues surrounding nation-building and failed states; updates that, I presume, are coming in the next edition. Overall, an extremely useful book.
