Student Resources

Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Perspectives on International Relations, 7e!

This site is intended to enhance your use of Perspectives on International Relations, 7e, by Henry R. Nau. 

Henry R. Nau’s bestselling book, Perspectives on International Relations is admired for its even-handed presentation of realism, liberalism, constructivism, and critical theory—and for expertly applying those perspectives in every chapter. Students focus on the ways the different perspectives shape our understanding of the root causes of historical events and current controversies in world affairs, and learn to think critically about the world’s most urgent issues. The new Seventh Edition includes updates on Brexit, the rise of Donald Trump and other populist leaders, and continuing developments for North Korea, Syria, and Russia.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.

You’ll find the following resources on this site:

  • Flashcards that strengthen understanding of key terms and concepts, and make it easy to maximize student study time, anywhere, anytime
  • mobile-friendly practice quizzes that allow students to assess how much they’ve learned and where they need to focus their attention
  • Video and multimedia resources that bring concepts to life, are tied to learning objectives, and are curated exclusively for this text
