This systematic and integrated analysis of the theory and practice of contemporary international relations, covers traditional and critical theory, core issues and recent developments in the field. Diversified and dewesternised, this new edition takes an impartial, global approach and considers a broad range of issues and actors. It places traditional Western thinkers in their historical context and brings in new, critical voices to show what the field of IR looks like today. A new critical theories chapter, expanded ‘Approaches To…’ boxes and accounts of the latest scholarship give readers a nuanced and pluralistic overview of IR theory. Updated empirical case studies bring the subject matter to life, and show how concepts and theories apply in practice.
