This concise introductory text has been written for students beginning International Relations or requiring a brief but comprehensive overview. It outlines key theories, approaches and controversies and shows how they relate to the realities of the international system including such contemporary challenges like environmental degradation as well as the more traditional concerns of violence and war, poverty and inequality. The second edition has been revised and updated throughout with new chapters added on globalization and on post-positivist theory.
