This book attempts to take some of the confusion and fear out of studying international relations. This is done by analyzing central concepts such as power and nationalism, by looking at the various ways in which the international system can be organized, by describing the principal sources of conflict in the system, and by investigating the sources and transfers of the weapons of war. This book also follows the development of diplomacy and its use to control day-to-day conflict as well as in crisis management. Institutions designed to limit or even resolve conflict, such as international organizations and international law, are also discussed in the quest for a better understanding of international relations.
