International Relations: Perspectives, Controversies and Readings
"Shimko provides a topical approach to international relations and hits on such hot-button issues as power politics, human nature, free trade, globalization, nuclear proliferation, terrorism, and the global commons. It is concise, but deep enough to allow students to engage fully without being intimidated by heft or haughtiness.""I prefer Shimko because (a) its length is shorter than most other texts, not drowning students in less important information; and (b) it is better-written than most other texts because the author addresses students in the second person, and (c) important questions are addressed in a way that is understandable to introductory-level students." Keith L. Shimko, Ph.D., is associate professor of political science at Purdue University. He has taught Introduction to International Relations since 1990 and has won several school and university-wide teaching awards. Dr. Shimko is the author of IMAGES AND ARMS CONTROL: PERCEPTIONS OF THE SOVIET UNION IN THE REAGAN ADMINISTRATION (Michigan, 1991), which was named a CHOICE outstanding academic book and received the Lynne-Reinner/Quincy Wright Award, as well as THE IRAQ WARS AND AMERICA'S MILITARY REVOUTION (Cambridge, 2010). He received his B.A. from Franklin and Marshall College and his Ph.D. from Indiana University.
