The consistent chapter outline of International Relations Brief Edition centers on three questions: what do we study (the issues and terms), how do we study it (theory), and how do we apply it (levels of analysis). These sections are followed by a concluding extended case study (Past, Present, and Future). The chapters are framed by open cases (vignettes) and additional examples throughout for contemporary and historical context. * Offers students a consistent analytical framework as a guidebook to IR. Every chapter addresses in turn three questions: what do we study, how do we think about it, and how do we apply our knowledge? * The critical-thinking approach is introduced in Chapter 1 and carried throughout the text. It appears in a variety of features, including opening vignettes, "Debate" boxes, "Case in Point" boxes, and visual reviews. * Realism and liberalism are contrasted in Chapter 2, and Chapter 3 covers constructivist and other alternative theoretical approaches. * All chapters include extensive historical material and end with an extended case application called "Past, Present, and Future."

* A unique Conclusion serves as a capstone exercise, guiding students in evaluating and making predictions for the future.
