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

91 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,169 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 )

38 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Professor Robert Jackson develops an original interpretation of Third World underdevelopment, explaining it in terms of international relations and law. He describes Third World countries as 'quasi-states', arguing that they are states in name only, demonstrating how international changes during the post-1945 period made it possible for many quasi-states to be created and to survive despite the fact that they are usually inefficient, illegitimate and domestically unstable
The global covenant : human conduct in a world of states by Robert H Jackson( Book )

30 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 481 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
Classical and modern thought on international relations : from anarchy to cosmopolis by Robert H Jackson( Book )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the tradition of the English School of International Relations theory, this book seeks to show how continuities in international politics outweigh the changes. The author demonstrates how the world is neither one of anarchy, as put forward by realists, nor is it a fully cosmopolitan order, as argued by those on the other side of the theoretical spectrum. Instead, it is a world of states who acknowledge a set of moral constraints that exists between them

Conflict and conversion in sixteenth century central Mexico : the Augustinian War on and beyond the Chichimeca frontier by Robert H Jackson( Book )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the sixteenth century Franciscan, Dominican, and Augustinian missionaries attempted to convert the native populations of central Mexico. The native peoples generally viewed the new religion in terms very different from that of the missionaries. As conflict broke out after 1550 as Spaniards invaded the Chichimeca frontier (the frontier between sedentary and nomadic natives), the missionaries faced new challenges on both sides of the frontier. Some sedentary natives resisted evangelization, and the missionaries saw themselves in a war against Satan and his minions. The Augustinians assumed a pivotal role in the evangelization campaign on both sides of the Chichimeca frontier, and employed different methods in the effort to convince the natives to embrace the new faith and to defeat Satan's designs. They used graphic visual aids and the threat of an eternity of suffering in hell to bring recalcitrant natives, such as the Otomi of the Mezquital Valley, into the fold
