The Penguin Dictionary of International Relations
Graham Evans, Jeffrey Newnham
Penguin Books, 1998 - Political Science - 623 pages
International relations have undergone a revolution since the immense upheavals in Eastern Europe of 1989. The end of the Cold War, which was in many ways the great simplifier of international affairs, has fundamentally changed the character of world politics and introduced dangerous new developments and processes. This new world disorder is fully reflected in this new Penguin dictionary. Providing a comprehensive overview of contemporary international relations, it contains over 700 definitions including: entries relating to ideas, theories, concepts, organisations and events e.g. preventative diplomacy, World Bank group; specialist terms e.g. Agent-structure; terms for developments that have greatly affected international relations in the post-Cold War period e.g. Big emerging markets (BEMs).
