Welcome to the web pages of the History of International Relations textbook project. This book provides a brief overview of the history of international relations from an explicitly non-European perspective. Europe certainly matters but, as it turns out, not all that much. Click on the links below to read more. Check out the “book blog” too where I post additional material and updates, and follow the book on Twitter. I tweet on things historical and non-European above all. I am thrilled that the textbook will be published by Open Book Publishers, in open access format, that the text will be free for everyone to read online or to download as pdfs, but also to buy as a regular book.
