William R. Keylor ,The Twentieth-Century World and Beyond :An International History since 1900
(OUP 2006 5th ed.)
The Twentieth-Century World and Beyond: An International History Since 1900 , explores the history of modern relations between the U.S., Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The book's unique analytical framework which focuses on the relationships between these countries rather than on their individual histories helps readers to easily examine how the nations of the world have interacted since the beginning of the last century. Extensively revised in this fifth edition, The Twentieth-Century World and Beyond reflects the latest scholarship. The new edition addresses such issues as refugees and stateless persons, human rights, the environment, and the events of September 11, 2001. Updated to include the war on terrorism, military action in Iraq, and the causes and consequences of globalization, this edition also explores the expanding role of non-governmental organizations, the threat of AIDS to world order, narcotics trafficking, and environmental degradation.

Chris Brown with Kirsten Ainsley ,Understanding International Relations,
(Macmillan, 2005 3rd ed)
The text succeeds in giving a clear account of all the main theoretical possibilities and, in a non-judgemental but not uncritical way, setting them in context. No book is more likely to succeed in persuading a sceptical undergraduate - someone convinced of the existence of a self-evident world of facts - that not only is a knowledge of theory necessary to understand international relations, but it is fun.
