Beschreibung

International Relations Theory: A Critical Introduction is an innovative new textbook, which introduces students to the main theories in International Relations. It also deconstructs each theory allowing students not only to understand them, but also to critically engage with the assumptions and myths that underpin them. It does this by using five familiar films as tools for first understanding each theory and then for understanding the myths that make them so persuasive for some people.Key features of this textbook include:* coverage of the main theories and traditions including: Realism & Neo-realism, Idealism and Neo-idealism, Liberalism, Constructivism, Postmodernism, Gender, Globalisation and the 'End of History'* innovative use of narratives from five famous films that students will be familiar with: Lord of the Flies, Independence Day, Wag the Dog, Fatal Attraction, and The Truman Show* clearly written, providing students with boxed key concepts, guides to further reading and thinking.This breakthrough textbook has been designed to unravel the complexities of International Relations theory in a way that allows students a clearer idea of how the theories work and some of the myths that are associated with them.
