This isn’t really a book about international relations, but it’s a fascinating exploration of the origins of great human follies (like Prussian scientific forestry or Stalinist collectivized agriculture). Scott pins the blame for these grotesque man-made disasters on centralized political authority (. Arguably still the best single guide to the ways that psychology can inform our understanding of world politics. Among other things, it convinced that I would never know as much history as Jervis does.

This hands-on exercise allows students to relate the concepts and issues at the foundation of global politics to the realities of international politics today. As influential leaders in the fictional world of Politica, each team of students governs a country with a unique history, geography, and culture. The teams must use strategy and negotiation to succeed - and survive - seeking to achieve specific territorial, security, and economic objectives. In the process, they grapple with a range of complex challenges: energy security, ethnic conflict, humanitarian intervention, environmental disaster, terrorism, nuclear proliferation, and more. Students also pursue individual objectives based on the governmental post they hold - and quickly learn that self-interest and national interest are not always compatible. Teams are judged on their effectiveness in meeting stated objectives, but must also relate their practical experience to the academic content of the course. Toward this end, the book provides summaries, analysis, study questions, and additional sources of information for each of the theories and issues encountered during the simulation. Guidelines for instructors are also included. "International Relations in Action" has been tested in multiple courses, with students and instructors unanimously agreeing that it makes abstract theories practical and accessible, evokes an appreciation for the complexity of international politics, and generates enthusiasm for the study of international relations. In the representative words of one student, "It was the best learning experience I've ever had."

My professor assigned this as a required text in our World Politics and Political Economy class. We were separated into groups to represent the fictional states represented in the book and made to interact with each other taking into account the author's created relationships between the nations, present and lacking resources of each nation, specific goals, and the possibility of creating alliances and declaring war as we saw fit. This definitely put word politics and political economy into perspective for us and I highly recommend it as regular practice in any school system.
