When should one state intervene in another's policies? What are the moral implications of intervention? How do states live peaceably within the global village? What is a state, and what is the global community within which states exist?

These are questions of international relations, to which Angelo Codevilla provides a simple introduction. International relations have remained undefined in academic circles, he posits, so statesmen have defined it through their policies and accomplishments.

A Student's Guide to International Relations is historical and theoretical, showing students how international relations developed, how states pursue these relations, and the tools of international statecraft including diplomacy, war and subversion.

Codevilla deftly moves between theory, fact, and ideology to present an organic picture. Readers are swept into the vast scope of international relations, and will enjoy a renewed appreciation of the subtleties and difficulties of non-domestic politics.

C. Hollis Crossman used to be a child. Now he is a husband and father, teaches adult Sunday school in his Presbyterian congregation, and likes weird stuff. He might be a mythical creature, but he's definitely not a centaur. Read more of his reviews here.
