Introduction to international relations : theories and approaches by Robert H Jackson( Book )

93 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The end of the cold war has provoked an explosive increase in theories, concepts, and debates in the discipline of international relations. There is growing confusion as to what are the important issues and what are the best ways of approaching them. This highly successful textbook provides a systematic introduction to the principle theories in international relations. It combines incisive and original analysis with a clear and accessible writing style, making it the ideal textbook for all students taking an introductory course in international relations or international relations theory. The book focuses on the main theoretical traditions - Realism, Liberalism, International Society, and theories of international political economy. The third edition includes two new chapters on Social Constructivism and foreign policy. Emphasis is placed on the relationship between IR theory (academic knowledge of IR) and IR practice (real world events and activities of world politics). The authors carefully explain how particular theories organize and sharpen our view of the world
Quasi-states : sovereignty, international relations, and the Third World by Robert H Jackson( Book )

42 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Jackson examines the birth and survival of Third World nations since the end of the Second World War. He describes these countries as "quasi-states," arguing that they exist more by the support and indulgence of the international community than by the abilities and efforts of their own governments and peoples. He investigates the international normative framework that upholds sovereign statehood in the Third World. This he calls "negative sovereignty" and contrasts it with what he sees as the "positive sovereignty" that emerged in Europe along with the modern state. Within this structure, he examines how negative sovereignty arose, and its mechanisms and consequences for both international politics and the domestic conditions of quasi-states. He concludes by assessing the future of quasi-states and the institution of negative sovereignty
The global covenant : human conduct in a world of states by Robert H Jackson( Book )

31 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Global Covenant, a ground-breaking work by one of the leading scholars in international relations, rejuvenates the classical international society approach and brings it into contact with the new era of world politics. This major study presents a comprehensive analysis of the most important international issues of our time, including peace and security, war and intervention, human rights, failed states, territories and boundaries, and democracy. It profitably draws on diplomatic and military history, international legal studies, and international political theory to address basic methodological questions and to present the elements of a human sciences approach to the study of world politics. The Global Covenant endeavors to justify the world-wide state system as a foundation of political freedom, and envisions the future of international society in the 21st century.--Publisher description
