Published by CQ Press College
The scientific approach to international relations has transformed the field. And now, thanks to a revolutionary revision, Principles of International Politics offers a crisp and clear introduction to international relations from the strategic point of view.

Responding to user feedback and classroom testing, Principles has been completely recast so that the book is focused squarely on the central insights of the strategic perspective. Honing in on two key ideas—winning coalitions and selectorate size—the book delivers the fundamental lessons of the theory more easily than ever, giving readers even better access to the most powerful way of thinking about IR today.

Not only will readers find the text easier to follow, they’ll also find the book shorter—almost half the length of the previous edition. Streamlining places the take-away points front and center, and the basic tools of the model are delivered in clear step-by-step language, allowing newcomers to the field to grasp the theory’s powerful insights.

What hasn’t changed: Bueno de Mesquita’s commitment to covering the fundamentals of IR. You’ll find a full examination of security problems, with special attention to theories of war, an exploration of the democratic peace, the problems of terrorism, military intervention, the role of foreign aid, democratization, international political economy, globalization, international organizations, alliances, and international law.

One of the few textbooks I thoroughly enjoyed. Bueno de Mesquita explains the traditional (and, IMHO, nonsensical) approaches to foreign policy analysis, then introduces his own: Events are controlled not by states, or by groups, but by PEOPLE, who are primarily motivated by power and their own wants and desires. A solid intro to IR theory.

As i have always encountered more than a lot of prbms, in finding books and other things here in Romania, would you please be so kind and send me digital copies of the books i need, in return for mine? If so, please do send me 'Principles of international politics' by Bruce B.d.Mesquita and A.Smith and others on war & strategic intell. by him, as with those you can find on 'Kings of War.uk, C.I.A.
