THIS BOOK IS RECOMMENDED BY FPSC FOR OPTIONAL SUBJECT INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
Theories of International Relations Scott Burchill and Andrew. Like its predecessors, the third edition is intended to provide upper-levelÂ undergraduates and postgraduates with a guide to the leading theoreticalÂ perspectives in the field.Â The origins of the project lie in the development by Deakin UniversityÂ of a distance-learning course in 1995: early versions of several chaptersÂ were initially written for the course guide for this. The first edition ofÂ this book brought together substantially revised versions of these withÂ new chapters on Feminism and Green Politics. The second editionaddedÂ a further chapter on Constructivism. None of those involved in the projectÂ at the outset guessed that the result would be quite such a successfulÂ text as this has turned out to be, with course adoptions literally all overÂ the world.Â The third edition has again been substantially improved. For thisÂ edition, Jack Donnelly has written a new chapter on the varieties ofÂ Realism. Jacqui True has produced what is virtually a new chapter onÂ Feminism. Andrew Linklaterâs chapter on the English School replacesÂ the one on Rationalism which he contributed to the first and secondÂ editions. All chapters, however, have been revised and updated to reflectÂ developments in the literature and to take account, where appropriate,Â of the significance of â9/11â for theories of world politics. The thirdÂ edition also includes a significantly revised introduction on the importanceÂ of international relations theory for students of world affairs.Â Last but not least, the whole book has been redesigned, consistencyÂ between chapters in style and presentation has been improved, and aÂ consolidated bibliography has been added with Harvard referencesÂ replacing notes throughout.
