Angelo M Codevilla

A Student's Guide to International Relations

A concise journey through geopolitics and the continuing debate about America’s role in the world.
Terrorist attacks, wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the rise of China, and the decline of Europe have underscored the necessity of understanding the world around us. But how should we approach this crucial but often misunderstood topic? What do we need to know about the international order and America’s role in it?
A Student’s Guide to International Relations provides a vital introduction to the geography, culture, and politics that make up the global environment. Angelo Codevilla, who has taught international relations at some of America’s most prestigious universities, explains the history of the international system, the dominant schools of American statecraft, the instruments of power, contemporary geopolitics, and more. The content of international relations, he demonstrates, flows from the differences between our global village’s peculiar neighborhoods.
This witty and wise book helps make sense of a complex world.

    Economic subversion—that is, either positive or negative inducements to specific individuals or groups within the target country—can be highly successful
