Jenny Edkins, Nick Vaughan-Williams. 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

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. 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.

Jenny Edkins is Professor of International Politics at Aberystwyth University. Nick Vaughan-Williams is Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Exeter. Her books include Global Politics: A New Introduction, with Maja Zehfuss (Routledge, 2008). 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.

A wide range of critical theorists is used in the study of international politics, and until now there has been no text that gives concise and accessible introductions to these figures. 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.

Each chapter is written by an expert with a detailed knowledge of the theorist concerned, representing a range of approaches under the rubric ‘critical’, including Marxism and post-Marxism, the Frankfurt School, hermeneutics, phenomenology, postcolonialism, feminism, queer theory, poststructuralism, pragmatism, scientific realism, deconstruction and psychoanalysis.

Key features of each chapter include:

a clear and concise biography of the relevant thinker

an introduction to their key writings and ideas

a summary of the ways in which these ideas have influenced and are being used in international relations scholarship

a list of suggestions for further reading

Written in engaging and accessible prose, Critical Theorists and International Relations is a unique and invaluable resource for undergraduates, postgraduates and scholars of international relations.
