World Politics: Interests, Interactions, Institutions Reviews

    If you're looking for a book that says, "I am a great introduction to neoliberal theories of international relations, and neoliberal theories only," 'World Politics' will be right up your alley. If, however, you want anything well-rounded and willing to approach the insights generated by other academic schools, this isn't for you. Ultimately forgettable, and would earn even fewer stars if not for its relatively interesting and applicable case studies (which are clever in the sense that they're directly integrated with each chapter's topic).

    It is a good introductory book, but far from anything formal.

    A decent introduction to very broad, initial concepts. Occasionally there are looks at deeper events, but for the most part the book is definitions, a quick history run-down, and introductory concepts. While I enjoyed it and found it easy to read, at times it was too easy, and far too repetitive.

    Not my favorite textbook for an introduction to IR. The IPE section is pretty solid, but the war chapters are almost indecipherable for a new student. Will not be my textbook for next semester.
