International relations traditionally referred to the study of foreign affairs and political interaction between states. Today, the field covers the whole complex of cultural, economic, legal, military, and political relations of all states and their component populations, as well as non-state actors and international organizations. Research and scholarship in this area has an important impact our understanding of the past and of current events. It is imperative that students, scholars and professionals stay abreast of new research, new interpretations, and new theoretical ideas. The overlapping fields of practice that come together in the study of international relations make it challenging for students, scholars and professionals to stay informed about every applicable area. The task is made more difficult because a great deal of this work has moved online with the most recent scholarship and research appearing in online databases. Rather than sifting through these ever-expanding mountains of information that may or may not yield relevant results, students and researchers alike can rely on Oxford Bibliographies in International Relations to offer a reliable, up-to-date, and authoritative guide to the best literature in the field.
