    Blatter, Joachim, and Markus Haverland. For scholars of IR, the most discipline-specific broader text is Case Studies and Theory Development in the Social Sciences George and Bennettwhile Qualitative Methods in International Relations Klotz and Prakash also contains contributions that explicitly address case study methods, or methods such as process tracing, that are relevant to case study research. The Columbia Encyclopedia, 6th ed. Pearson and J. Each of the chapters has very few subheadings, but I think this is appropriate. Accuracy rating: 5 For the most part, the book is accurate and error free.

    As a separate and definable discipline, however, it dates from the early 20th cent. The latter includes a contribution by Harry Eckstein on case study research in political science. Therefore, as we will see in the overview of scholarship presented here within this bibliography, early methodological literature on case studies in IR, political science, and comparative politics, attempted to evaluate the utility, or contribution, of case studies along the lines of the extent to which case studies could contribute to causal explanation and generalizability. For registered lecturers - Use adaptable PowerPoint slides as the basis for lecture presentations or as hand-outs in class. Indeed, although there has been much discussion in the literature on case study design with an aim to maximize causal inference within the positivist tradition, this bibliography will highlight scholarship on case studies that includes both positivist debates on causality, inference, and generalization, and scholarship that embraces case studies as a means of producing deeper context-dependent knowledge on a given topic, notion, or concept.

    This is because debates over case study methods have tended to center around wider philosophy of social science debates on causal inference and the study of the social world. The latter includes a contribution by Harry Eckstein on case study research in political science. Each chapter provides an explanation of the theories and historical context and follows with a clear and relevant example. Consistency rating: 5 The text has a strong internal consistency.

Cases in international relations book

Burton, Dawn. The accessible style allows the author to provide practical assistance to students dealing with common hurdles, such as writing good literature reviews and embarking on field research. As such, it is not surprising that case studies have been the subject of debate as to what constitutes a case study, how to conduct or design case studies, the potential contribution of case studies to general, or case specific, knowledge in the field of IR, and of course, how to evaluate case studies.

For the very first time my students are not afraid of using methodology in their works and are enthusiastic about it. Each chapter provides an explanation of the theories and historical context and follows with a clear and relevant example. In practice, international relations and international affairs forms a separate academic program or field from political science, and the courses taught therein are highly interdisciplinary.

Yin, Robert K. While there is a growing body of methodological scholarship that focuses on case studies in the social science that makes reference to research in IR, most of the texts below have a broader disciplinary focus.

Also of note are texts that provide readers with guidance on how to conduct case studies ThomasYin Beyond that introduction of the advent of sovereign state, the book goes on to address the international global condition satisfactorily encompassing all regions and peoples.

International Relations Theory

In all cases, the field studies relationships between political entities polities such as sovereign states, inter-governmental organizations IGOsinternational non-governmental organizations INGOsother non-governmental organizations NGOsand multinational corporations MNCsand the wider world-systems produced by this interaction.

The text features a range of case studies and 'micro-cases' throughout, demonstrating the relevance of international relations theory in the contemporary Middle East, and helping students to apply their learning to real world situations.

It does well in covering traditional, enduring, and emerging issues and problems in international relations. This text contains a practical guide to doing case study research and analyzing findings.
