A ‘Day 0’ beginner’ guide to International Relations (IR), structured to condense the most important information into the smallest space and present that information in the most accessible way. The chapters offer a broad sweep of the basic components of IR and the key contemporary issues that concern the discipline. The narrative arc forms a complete circle, taking readers from no knowledge to competency. The journey starts by examining how the international system was formed and ends by reflecting that IR is always adapting to events and is therefore a never-ending journey of discovery. The chapters place the reader inside crucial issues and debates so they can understand how things work, and where they fit in the world around them.
