Viotti and Mark V. Kauppi wrote this book because they believe it is possible and essential to improve a student's conceptual and theoretical thinking about international relations. If one does not think conceptually, a course in world politics threatens to become little more than current events. Hence, they structured the book in such a way that key concepts, themes, and trends are utilized throughout the discussion of various topics.
