Scholars and students of international relations must contend with increasingly sophisticated methods for studying world politics. "Models, Numbers, and Cases" is a comprehensive assessment of the three main approaches to international relations: case study, quantitative methods, and formal methods. Clearly written chapters explain the most important methodological and theoretical issues in the field, and demonstrate the practical application of these methods to international political economy, environmental policy, and security. "Models, Numbers, and Cases" is a concise and valuable guide to the challenging terrain of contemporary international relations study.
