Index 289Preface to the Third Edition
Like its predecessors, the third edition is intended to provide upper-level
undergraduates and postgraduates with a guide to the leading theoretical
perspectives in the field.
The origins of the project lie in the development by Deakin University
of a distance-learning course in 1995: early versions of several chapters
were initially written for the course guide for this. The first edition of
this book brought together substantially revised versions of these with
new chapters on Feminism and Green Politics. The second edition added
a further chapter on Constructivism. None of those involved in the pro-
ject at the outset guessed that the result would be quite such a successful
text as this has turned out to be, with course adoptions literally all over
the world.
The third edition has again been substantially improved. For this
edition, Jack Donnelly has written a new chapter on the varieties of
Realism. Jacqui True has produced what is virtually a new chapter on
Feminism. Andrew Linklater’s chapter on the English School replaces
the one on Rationalism which he contributed to the first and second
editions. All chapters, however, have been revised and updated to reflect
developments in the literature and to take account, where appropriate,
of the significance of ‘9/11’ for theories of world politics. The third
edition also includes a significantly revised introduction on the impor-
tance of international relations theory for students of world affairs.
Last but not least, the whole book has been redesigned, consistency
between chapters in style and presentation has been improved, and a
consolidated bibliography has been added with Harvard references
replacing notes throughout.
As with the earlier editions, our publisher, Steven Kennedy has been
keenly involved in every stage of the production of this book. We are
grateful once again for his unfailing commitment and wise counsel.
Thanks also to Gary Smith of Deakin University and Dan Flitton for
their contributions to earlier editions. Above all we would like to thank
our co-authors for their hard work and forbearance.
