by Michael G. I personally am conservative and so I was looking for a book which would help me grasp the subject from a more conservative viewpoint than the average fare. However, I would not call it conservative, I would call the book fairly centrist. While the book does view the world from an overtly American perspective and it also does not ignore conservative ideas such Huntington's "Clash of Civilizations" model of geopolitics- I would still call it centrist rather than conservative.

This was a very enjoyable, readable, and relatable book. The terms were crisp, clear, succinct, and simple to follow. I enjoyed all the summary boxes: Concepts, Geography, Economics, Reflections, Turning Point, etc.. Points were made by interweaving history and background throughout the text. I would like this to be the recommended reading for our IR classes at my school, assuming that the current edition is just as sharp as this one, but unfortunately, it's up to each individual professor to decide the required reading for the class. The possible only thing wrong with this book is that it doesn't discuss IR political theories per se.

What I like about this book is that it is short, it is readable, and it introduces the unitiated reader quickly and broadly to various thinkers and models of IR and does so in historical context.

I agree with the others that it definitely has some phrases which are unusual for a textbook. Random opinion, or generally unacademic phrases here and there. This is defintely a detractor, but also makes the book a bit fun.

About the perspective of the author. I personally am conservative and so I was looking for a book which would help me grasp the subject from a more conservative viewpoint than the average fare. However, I would not call it conservative, I would call the book fairly centrist. While the book does view the world from an overtly American perspective and it also does not ignore conservative ideas such Huntington's "Clash of Civilizations" model of geopolitics- I would still call it centrist rather than conservative. A conservative for example, would give pre-eminence to Reagan's place in the cold war, this one does not.

If you happen to be against American foreign policy, pro-UN, etc, this book will definitely upset you, as it did other reviewers here.

This book, while I know it is a textbook, is a good read for anyone entering/currently in the military. It outlines several international relations issue which are important to understand, especially in a job function that it is impacted by international relations! It is easy to read and very well written. I wish I had read something like this prior to my time served, as it provides a foundational understanding of the US history of international relations and insight on what we should improve on...not only politically but as a person living in a global economy who may one day interact with others internationally.

Unlike most textbooks, this book gets to the point in a few short paragraphs. It reads more like a novel than a textbook. The chapters are short and do not contain a lot of information, but the minimum that is needed to describe international relations. It's almost like a "For Dummies" book on international relations.

Overall, it is a great book. I was thinking about selling it back, but it just reads so well and provides enough information to keep it on my bookshelf.

This book is packed with information which I found to be much more than I could wrap my head around. Besides that it definately explains a lot about international relations which is a good read for anyone who has time for it,

The New World of International Relations is a good introductory book to the field of Political Science and International Relations. It presents information in a general and an understandably American way. It's not overbiased, but is written by Americans for American political views, general knowledge and understanding of current events, etc. It provides a good start for those who are looking for a good start into the ever-expanding knowledge base of Political Science

The book contains phrases which are easily understood by a novice audience. There is random opinion which leads me to believe that there are multiple thoughts designed into the books framework - may be trying to portray an objective opinion but does not do a good job covering up a slight disdain for US foreign policy. This makes the book laughable and/or irritable when reading but one should also be mindful and do additional research to get the full story on some of the subjects being present in the book.

I would not call it a conservative piece of work, I would call the book somewhat left of center but then again aren't 90% of college texts that way! There is some good info on the EU but it could use a little more on EU economic failures and its social style background, focus more on how that shapes EU agendas.

The book should also focus more on the multitude of UN failures and give further details on those failures. Give college students, who are supposed to be mindfully challenged, something to ponder and question. Critical thinking is what they are supposed to be accomplishing.
