What's new

A lot can change in a subject between editions, particularly in a subject as fast-moving as IR. The editors and contributors have extensively reviewed the book and its accompanying resources, and as a result numerous additions have been made to the seventh edition, a selection of which you can view below.

  • Four brand new chapters including: Feminism, Race, International Organizations, and NGOs.

  • Questions accompanying every case study to encourage students apply theory to real world events.

  • An opposing opinions feature which helps students to critically evaluate an argument.

  • Online simulations recreating real-world situations, designed to explore key elements of that situation.

Online simulations

What are simulations?

  • A recreation of a real-world situation, designed to explore key elements of that situation

The benefits of simulations:

  • Students get a ‘lived experience’
  • Builds up deeper understanding of complex issues and situations
  • Develops a range of skills e.g. negotiation, reflection, problem solving, applying theory to practice
