Critical Perspectives in International Studies offers an exciting survey of recent approaches to the study of international politics, including critical theory, radical theory, constructivism, postmodernism, system change, and feminist and gender perspectives. The authors--among the founders and leaders of these innovative ways to comprehend and re-present world politics--reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of each school of thought and suggest future research agendas.
