Reviews of previous editions:
'An outstanding textbook.' - Andreas Bieler, University of Birmingham
'One of the most useful books on International Relations theory to have appeared in recent years...a most valuable addition to the burgeoning literature in the field.' - Chris Brown, Political Studies
'A very fine book, bringing together a group of contributors who describe the major currents of International Relations theory. Beginning with 'liberal internationalism' and finishing up with 'green politics', the book is highly readable and illuminating for a subject not everyone finds accessible.' - RUSI Journal
