The Globalization of World Politics:An Introduction to International Relations

“The Globalization of World Politics has done a superb job. Miraculously, it is both handy and sumptuous. Handy in the sense that the volume is self-standing in itself with succinct and lucid style and sumptuous in the sense that the volume covers the whole range of schools of thought and the whole range of policy issues that need to be dealt with in the standard curse of international relations as if readers could feel the richness of each chapter one after another. With substantial revision and updating in 2010, the volume shines even more. The volume shoots at two birds with one stone-successfully! If you are asked to choose one textbook in the area of international relations, this is it. ” – Takashi Inoguchi, University of Tokyo
