Shapiro, eds. Jenny Edkins and Maja Zehfuss, eds. London: Routledge, Critical International Relations. Critical Theorists and International Relations more. Critical Theorists and International Critical Theorists and International Relations provides a wide-ranging introduction to thirty-two important theorists whose work has been influential in thinking about global politics.
REVIEWS Edkins and Vaughan-Williams have produced a very helpful collection of introductions to the thinking of a wide variety of writers who have been influential in the critical analysis of international relations. This comprehensive set of accessible introductions helps the reader understand the core contributions of writers who have been seminal in the development of a critical account of international relations.
I can finally see myself as an occasional IR instructor in a book that provides the critical perspectives lacking in most IR texts, is organized to facilitate pedagogy, and is consistently excellent, chapter by chapter. Shapiro, University of Hawai'i "Global politics has provided an important context of critical theory.
Yet its growing complexity has also called attention to the ongoing task of articulating and reflecting upon the roles of identity, power, order, and resistance in International Relations. Critical Theorists and International Relations is a splendid and much-needed volume that addresses and fills, in a truly original manner, this important niche.
Providing comprehensive and authoritative analyses of the key critical theorists, this edited volume will continue to remind us of the ever-present need to wrestle harder with the contextual and overlapping meanings of critical theory in International Relations.
This is a collection of diverse scholarship exploring the wide parameters of critical international theory. No stodgy hagiography, the contributors offer an accessible but critical collection of often-personal reflections on some of the most important thinkers in IR. Students of international politics from a wide range of methodological persuasions will find this book an invaluable starting point.

Global Politics: A New Introduction is an original, groundbreaking, engaged and intellectually stimulating textbook for core courses on world politics, international politics and international relations.
Reviews 'Global Politics: A New Introduction explodes the tired axioms, sloppy analogies, common assumptions, and conventional wisdoms of International Relations. This collection, unlike any other, asks all the right questions, troubles the easy answers, and provides a common intellectual strategy for tackling the most pressing global issues of today.
I can imagine students and their professors plunging into these enticing questions, making surprising connections between the cases, testing and refining proposed answers and coming up with fresh insights of their own.
It meets the demands of enquiring minds who all too often come to study IR only to be frustrated and distracted by the parochialism of intra-disciplinary squabbles.
The question-based approach is a stunning innovation that opens up the field of IR: overall a teaching and learning aid worthy of its title. The chapters are of a high standard written by scholars with established reputations for critical-creative thought. The conceptual depth of the chapters is sometimes really wonderful. Because of the range of authors and the organization of each chapter, it presents many theoretical and ideological points of view. Introduction: What does this Introduction to global politics do?
