Promotional Information

An accessible and lively student survey of the dominant theory in International Relations.


'Donnelly's book produces a clear, but sophisticated, analysis of realism in international relations. It is one of the rate examples of a book of international relations theory that is approachable and easily understandable, but not lacking in original or noteworthy analysis. This book will be of use to both experienced academics and novices in the study of international relations. It provides an excellent, and very readable, starting point for the study of realism ... Donnelly's book is both an excellent starting off point and a significant contribution to this enduring debate.' The Journal of European Affairs
"Donnelly (Univ. of Denver) delivers a compact but encyclopedic treatment of a standard theme in the study of theories of international relations--realism, commonly referred to as power politics..with flair Donnelly provides a meta-analysis of a most important analytic approach to international relations...Absolutely essential for upper-division undergraduates and graduate students." Choice
Reviewed with David P. Forsythe's book Human Rights in International Relations: " The authors' skill and influence in the study of international relations, international theory, and human rights are indisputably relevant. Both volumes offer scholarship that is of great value to activists, academics, and policymakers with an interest in issues no less important than power on the world stage." Human Rights Quarterly
