This major reference work comprises 80 articles representing the most influential theoretical writings by international relations scholars. Introduced by an essay from Stephen Chan and Cerwyn Moore, the four thematically organised volumes cover the major traditions of international relations (IR) theory: Volume 1 examines realist theory in IR and includes classic realist statements as well as recent theoretical critiques and debates that have helped set the parameters of this approach. Volume 2 traces the development of pluralist approaches to IR from the historical emergence of liberalism through to contemporary work on globalisation, human rights and ethics. Volume 3 covers the various structuralist approaches stemming from the thinking of Marx and Gramsci as well as more recent work on the structures of global civil society and international political economy. Volume 4 focuses on the range of reflexive approaches to international relations that include constructivism, feminism, postmodernism and critical geopolitics. Together, the four volumes provide an unparalleled resource providing both broad coverage of the subject, historical depth and contemporary relevance. The SAGE Library of International Relations is a new series of major works that will bring together the most influential and field-defining articles, both classical and contemporary, in a number of key areas of research and inquiry in International Relations. Each multi-volume set will represent a collection of the essential published works collated from the foremost publications in the field by an Editor or Editorial Team of renowned international stature. They will also include a full introduction, presenting a rationale for the selection and mapping out the discipline's past, present and likely future.
