International Relations Theory: 0 (SAGE Course Companions series) (Inglés) Tapa blanda – 19 mar 2009
Descripción del producto
With the growing proliferation of approaches to the field of international relations, the demand for clear and accessible textbooks has never been higher. Oliver Daddow has written an excellent course companion which neatly complements the suite of existing standard texts. He has succeeded in making complex arguments easily understandable - and has done so in a manner that treats readers with the respect they deserve
Professor of International Relations and Head of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Exeter
An admirably clear and lucid book that succeeds emphatically in demonstrating the relevance of IR theory for students new to the field. Oliver Daddow has done a wonderful job in combining thorough exposition of key theories with sound and intelligent pedagogical advice
Professor Ben Rosamond
University of Warwick
This book nicely balances academic content with very helpful material to guide students through their courses on international relations theory. This is not an easy task, and Daddow has done it exceptionally well. This book will be of considerable practical use to students of international relations theory
Professor Steve Smith
University of Exeter
Oliver Daddow manages to achieve a remarkable feat as the novel approach utilised seems to present IR theory from the perspective of the student as well as the lecturer...As anyone who has taught IR knows, it is the language used within IR rather than the theories themselves that can often hinder undergraduate progression. It is here that one of the book's real strengths lies. Through its focus on ‘common pitfalls’, ‘new terms’, ‘questions to ponder’, ideas for ‘taking it further’ and ‘references to more information’ the text manages to break down the complexities that often scare undergraduates

Reseña del editor
SAGE Course Companions provide students with an insider's guide into how to make the most of their undergraduate courses and extend their understanding of the key concepts covered.

Written in a straightforward and clear style, it is designed to augment, rather than replace, existing textbooks for the course and provides:
o pointers to success in course exams and written assessment exercises;
o easy access to the key theories in international relations;
o guidance on the essential study skills required to pass the course;
o help with developing critical thinking;
o 'taking it further' sections that suggest how readers can extend their thinking beyond the received wisdom.
