Those responsible for this authoritative publication have brought together nearly sixty contributing writers in order to fill a flagrant absence. Until now, there has been no defining work on International Relations for the French-speaking world. From now on, this ambitious and exhaustive work will remedy that problem. Appropriately refusing to abandon this discipline to the Anglo-Saxon world, which has dominated the IR scene for more than a century, the authors leave nothing out as they paint a complete panorama of all there is to know on this subject. Accommodating both scholarship and simplicity, the authors underscore a research-based approach, analyze the different fields which make up IR and consider how to spread this knowledge while maintaining a concern for both expertise and pedagogy. Already this multi-author brainchild reveals itself to be an indispensable tool for a large readership of students, researchers, politicians, and diplomats lest we leave out the enlightened reader who will find in this resource a way to think about the world.
