Description

The Oxford Handbook of International Relations offers the most authoritative and comprehensive overview to date of the field of international relations. Arguably the most impressive collection of international relations scholars ever brought together within one volume, the Handbook debates the nature of the field itself, critically engages with the major theories, surveys a wide spectrum of methods, addresses the relationship between scholarship
and policy making, and examines the field's relation with cognate disciplines. The Handbook takes as its central themes the interaction between empirical and normative inquiry that permeates all theorizing in the field and the way in which contending approaches have shaped one another. In doing so, the Handbook provides
an authoritative and critical introduction to the subject and establishes a sense of the field as a dynamic realm of argument and inquiry. The Oxford Handbook of International Relations will be essential reading for all of those interested in the advanced study of global politics and international affairs.

Review quote

the Handbook provides a tour de force, and is the single best catch-all textbook for an intermediate or advanced IR student... an absolute must buy for... for those who are thinking of taking a Masters in the discipline. * Stephen McGlinchey, eInternational Relations * can be warmly recommended to international lawyers seeking to enter the world of IR theory for the first time, and to those familiar with the literature who seek a reference work of depth and sophistication. * James Upcher, Global Law Books *
