Principles of International Politics : People's Power, Preferences, and Perceptions. by Bruce Bueno de Mesquita. Select Format: Paperback.

Leaders want to stay in power. Their self-interest is the decisive motivation for action in the international arena, and forms the theoretical backbone for this exciting departure from other introductory international relations texts. Through its discussion and development of the strategic perspective, "Principles of International Politics" shows students how leaders translate their personal interests and ambitions into actions of the state and convincingly demonstrates how international and domestic politics are inextricably linked. Clearly explaining both the foundational ideas of international relations as well as the key concepts of the strategic perspective, Bueno de Mesquita effectively links these to the analytic tools students will employ throughout.

This book raises the most interesting questions that brings students to study conflict and effectively abandons them after the second page. The rest of the textbook is a summary of the author's scholarship (in addition to about three or four like-minded souls), thinly veiled as a broader assessment of the field. There is no indication that the author has read, or believe it's worth engaging with, other approaches to the study of IR. All textbooks are biased, and Bueno De Mesquita is fairly honest about his own, but in this case the bias fails to illuminate much more than a narrow intellectual disposition.

the book was great, except for the fact that it was missing chapter nine. One whole chapter that was not even in the book?

I had to purchase this book for my international poli sci class at NYU and it was the most elementary, pointless textbook I've ever had to buy. If you have to buy this for class I guess you don't have much of a choice but I would suggest maybe not taking a class where this is the required reading. The whole book is filled with long, off topic metaphors and rambling that distract from the topic and the quality of English language skill is dreadful, it's like reading the convoluted thoughts of a 6th grader. He repeats himself constantly, and not in a reinforcing matter but more as if he simply never edited his book. He writes in an arrogant manner that is both condescending to the reader and implies the world would be a perfect place if he ran it. I have already taken a class on terrorism and the chapter on terrorism in this book was completely laughable; the worst I have ever read, as if he had never even read a basic intro on the subject. In most cases, especially that chapter, I found this book to be insulting to my intelligence, as I think any college student would. It is safe to say I learned nothing from this book and had to supplement it with outside reading. Even wikipedia was more helpful. At the end of the semester, I ceremoniously threw it down my apartment's trash chute with great glee.

I was required to purchase this book for a class, and I must say that it is by far one of the worst textbooks that has ever been foisted upon me.

BDM seems to take great joy in turning very simple, very obvious concepts into extremely convoluted, over-bloated metaphors with PLENTY of self-referential citation thrown in for good measure.

The book is difficult to follow at times. I found myself frequently re-reading paragraphs to make sure I wasn't missing something important, because the concepts that he took four pages to explain couldn't POSSIBLY be as simple as I was understanding them to be, right?! Wrong. They ARE that simple, and most of the text in this book is essentially pointless.

In short, use the glossary in this book if you must, and take notes from that. At least that way you can avoid most of the self-adulation and long-windedness.

Ignore the previous bad reviews for this textbook. It does a very good job of presenting the fundementals of International Politics and discussing the different schools of thought on the subject (this book is a believer in the "all politicians strive to keep themselves in power" theory, which is a contrast to other international political theories)

The book also covers all of the basic game theory over the first 10-12 chapters that you will need to know for most politics courses.
DireRaven
This is a marvellous book that moves beyond the loose metaphors that pass for theory in most of international relations.

I sincerely hope no one pays the slightest attention to the junk some people write in their reviews for Amazon. What a bunch of nit wits.

From one of the high priests of the rational choice cult comes a simplistic and obvious book. Foreign policy decision makers are motivated to keep their jobs! Really? Gee, we never knew that Bruce. Terrible book!
political leaders are motivated by their desire to stay in power? REALLY? wow, talk about obvious. and yet his book manages to explain the implications of this in the most convoluted, annoying way possible. he talks about terms he never defines, doesn't explain his math properly, and cites himself far more often than is necessary. this book is the only one that discusses issues in the abstract (so said my polisci prof), but it could still be written better.
