Notes on Readings for Review #5:
This section is devoted to alternative and challenging perspectives in international relations theories, including Postmodernism, Feminism, the role of culture/religion/civilization, and most recently the critical importance of the inclusion of non-Western views, or what is called the “global IR” in explaining and understanding international relations. In addition to chapters from Viotti and Kauppi, several additional articles and videos are available for this section.
