كان هذا الكتاب مقررا علينا في مادة العلاقات الدولية في السنة الثانية من الكلية ... أعجبني الكتاب ومازلت احتفظ به وربما استخدمته حتى وقت تخرجي على الرغم من أن أستاذ المادة قد طالته اتهامات وصلت إلى حد اتهامه بالتطبيع مع إسرائيل لأن مؤلف الكتاب يهودي ... ووصل الأمر للصحافة وتصدى له أحد الصحفيين الذين يجوز عليهم وصف "المطبلاتي" وقد وجد في ذلك مادة خصبة لتوزيع اتهامات لا بأس بها مما يعجب العامة، وعلى الرغم من مرور الكتاب على العديد من الأجهزة الرقابية نظرا لكون كليتي حكومية وإن كان القسم الإنجليزي ا ...more

Recommended to Star Shining Forever by: Thomas Edison State College
This book is required for the Thomas Edison State College online course "International Relations I" (POS-315). Just be careful on this one that you get a fairly recent version, only a couple years behind the current year. I got the 2010-2011 version and it worked great for the class I took in 2014. It's an engaging book. You'll read the whole thing in the class.

This is important information if you're taking the TESC course. The book has an online companion (at GET IT. Even
The writing tends to be a bit dry in parts, but the concepts are presented in a logic manner and are often tied together forming a bigger picture. This version was up to date as of the beginning of 2009.

This was an excellent introduction book. The text was clear and thorough. The only reason why I gave it 4/5 stars is because my professor felt the need to include supplemental reading as the main text (this book) did not cover everything necessary. Yet, the things that were not covered were few in number and easily accessed elsewhere.
International Relations. or "International Relations for Dummies?" The latter, it seems. That said, it should be noted that the text would serve as a decent introduction for precocious and politically minded young adults.
Kirk Bower
Very well done. This is the text i wanted to use in a global class, but what do i know.
book for school, well-done but a subject that doesn't interest me at all
“Not a bad textbook, I like how it is often updated very frequently”
Sebastian Cosgrove
McDonald's fast food version of international relations.
Textbook. Good basic overview of Int'l Relations.
Book was the text used in INR 2002 class
sufficient for a text book.
