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.

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.

The book was a bit dry in areas but for the most part it was really informative and smooth reading. Great book, really enjoyed it and I learned a lot about geopolitics.
