Reviews - What do customers think about PRINCIPLES OF INTERNATIONAL POLITICS: People's Power, Preferences, And Perceptions?

Great Politics Book  Aug 22, 2006
Ignore the previous bad reviews for this textbook. It does a very good job of presenting the fundementals of International Politics and discussing the different schools of thought on the subject (this book is a believer in the "all politicians strive to keep themselves in power" theory, which is a contrast to other international political theories)

The book also covers all of the basic game theory over the first 10-12 chapters that you will need to know for most politics courses.
Principles  Jul 3, 2006
This is a marvellous book that moves beyond the loose metaphors that pass for theory in most of international relations.
I sincerely hope no one pays the slightest attention to the junk some people write in their reviews for this site. What a bunch of nit wits.

poorly written and obvious  Nov 28, 2005
political leaders are motivated by their desire to stay in power? REALLY? wow, talk about obvious. and yet his book manages to explain the implications of this in the most convoluted, annoying way possible. he talks about terms he never defines, doesn't explain his math properly, and cites himself far more often than is necessary. this book is the only one that discusses issues in the abstract (so said my polisci prof), but it could still be written better.
Super transaction  Sep 16, 2005
Shipping was super fast, and book brand new, low price, and good communication, highly recommended
Self-Righteous  Feb 5, 2003
Throughout this text, Bueno de Mesquita tries to convey to the reader his belief that all wars and conflicts in the history of the world could have been avoided if only the decision makers had read his book. And through it all, he manages to project a sense of self-righteous superiority that I have never before seen in a book designed to be a textbook. I personally think that his theory has merit, but it is not the cure-all for international politics. He uses many examples, some of which are good and some of which are bad. An example of the latter is found in the chapter on preferences (9) when he spends about 10 pages on an inane and contrived example concerning a soda machine and the choices involved. Stick with examples involving the subject of the book! Also, he likes to refer to himself a lot. There is one instance in which he refers to his own past works 5 times in 2 consecutive paragraphs. This so annoyed me that I began highlighting each incident of self-citation, which generally occurs on every page.

That being said, if you're interested in BDM's strategic theory of International Relations, this is a good book, but if you want a more objective and comprehensive explanation of various IR theories, I would go with something else.
