International Studies Review

Welcome to ISR

The International Studies Review provides a window on current trends and research in the field of international studies. In it, scholars, educators, and policymakers can find pertinent information about new books in international studies as well as analytic reviews of recent trends and controversies in scholarship around the world. Published four time a year, the Review will help: (a) scholars engage in the kind of dialogue and debate that will shape the field of international studies in the future; (b) graduate and undergraduate students understand the major issues in international studies and identify promising opportunities for research; and (c) educators keep up with new ideas and research.


The focus of the International Studies Review is on books and research dealing with international institutions and the foreign policies, international interactions, and international relationships of such political actors as national governments, subnational groups, and international governmental and nongovernmental organizations.

At the same time, the Review is committed to engaging the entire international studies community in a creative dialogue. Over time the essay and book reviews will give attention to such diverse topics as security studies, international regime theory, international trade and finance, comparative studies, development studies, feminist international theory, peace studies, foreign policy analysis, international organizations, international communication, intelligence studies, international law, environmental studies, as well as various types of research methodologies.
