Publisher Comments:

Part of the “Longman Classics in Political Science” series, Nye's best-selling text has been completely updated with new discussions about Middle East politics, including the  Israel-Palestine dispute and the Iraq war, terrorism in general and radical Islamic terrorism in particular, the global politics of oil, and much more. Replete with illustrative examples and written in a lively, engaging manner, this is a brief, inexpensive book that students will buy and actually enjoy reading. It deftly balances theory and history to help students develop a well-rounded, informed framework for analyzing the international issues confronting us at the beginning of the 21st Century.

Book News Annotation:

Nye's (Harvard U.) textbook introduces students to the complexities of international politics by providing a solid grounding in the traditional realist theory before turning to liberal and constructivist approaches that became more prominent after the Cold War. The second edition includes new material on constructivist theory and soft power, Middle East conflicts, the impact of globalization, transnational threats to global security, power and interdependence in international political economy, and intervention and American power; updated materials in each chapter's suggested readings; and a new glossary.
Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
