Shimko, Keith L.


This innovative presentation of international relations provides introductory students with a foundation of knowledge to help them understand the broader historical context and the multiple perspectives that apply to this field. The first chapter surveys the development of international relations, focusing on the emergence and evolution of the modern state. The second chapter introduces major perspectives, both classic and new, that influence thinking about the issues. Each of the following 11 topical chapters explores an enduring and important argument in the field.A four-part structure in each chapter assists students in systematic, critical thinking regarding international affairs. Every chapter begins with a historical overview of the issue at hand, including its origins, evolution, and current status. The author leads students in a lively debate--plotting, discussing, and evaluating the different points of view--then offers a scholarly and political assessment of the situation. This distillation of the discussion reflects meaningful distinctions among political positions and helps students to cultivate an appreciation for the nature and structure of the argument.Each of the topical chapters (3-13) includes a feature, "Points of View," which uses primary source documents to demonstrate the ideas, debates, and arguments about international relations. These documents--from sources such as official foreign policy statements, government papers, and editorials--extend the chapter discussion both in and outside the classroom.Additional pedagogical features include marginal key terms and definitions, chapter summaries, discussion questions, and suggestions for further reading.Shimko, Keith L. is the author of 'International Relations Perspectives And Controversies', published 2004 under ISBN 9780618215485 and ISBN 0618215484.
