Module Reading List
Professor Clive Jones
Tutor information is taken from the Module Catalogue
It is essential that students consult the following texts:
John Baylis and Steve Smith (ed.), The globalization of world politics: an introduction to international relations. (Oxford, 4th edition 2008) http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/ There are copies in the Edward Boyle and Brotherton libraries. There are also copies of previous editions, which are also useful: The globalization of world politics: an introduction to international relations. However, it is recommended that you buy a copy the fourth edition from the University bookstore as this reading list is written with that edition in mind.
Robert Jackson and Georg Sorensen, Introduction to international relations : theories and approaches (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1st edition 1999 or 2nd edition 2003) and Andrew Heywood (hereafter Heywood), Global Politics (Palgrave, 2011).
Although it is not listed below there are many copies of Joshua S. Goldstein’s International Relations New York ; London : Longman 1st to 5th edition in the Edward Library. You may find this a helpful substitute for these two recommended books.
Another useful new book is Tim Dunne et.al. International relations theories : discipline and diversity y OUP, 2007.
Students will also find useful the following online journal http://www.e-ir.info which contains numerous short articles that relate to many of the topics and themes we will be discussing in the seminars. Again, take time to familiarise yourself with the articles.
