Pressestimmen

Honorable Mention for the 2011 PROSE Award in Government & Politics, Association of American Publishers "Drezner ... comes up with an intriguing intellectual conceit to explain various schools of international political theory. He imagines a world overrun with zombies and considers the likely responses of national governments, the U.N and other international organizations, and nongovernment organizations (NGOs)... This slim book is an imaginative and very helpful way to introduce its subject--who knew international relations could be this much fun?"--Publishers Weekly "A light, breezy volume, TIPZ is a valuable primer in international relations theory for laypeople, and thank God for that--it's been a long time coming. But Drezner's real genius is that he's written a stinging postmodern critique of IR theorists themselves, applying the full force of their structured reasoning to topics as diverse as Michael Jackson's breakdancing zombies, Peter Jackson's lesser film canon, and romantic zombie comedy flicks--'rom zom coms,' as he puts it. It's both a pedagogical text and a lampoon of pedagogy... Theories of International Politics and Zombies is one hell of an important tome."--Adam Weinstein, Mother Jones "Besides offering a condensed and accessible survey of how various schools of international-relations theory would respond, he reviews the implications of a zombie crisis for a nation's internal politics and its psychosocial impact. He also considers the role of standard bureaucratic dynamics on managing the effects of relentless insurgency by the living dead. While a quick and entertaining read, Theories of International Politics and Zombies is a useful introductory textbook on public policy--as well as a definitive monograph for the field of zombie studies."--Scott McLemee, Inside HigherEd "If the dynamics of international politics have conventionally been understood in terms of the quick and the dead, Daniel Drezner invites us to consider another way of being--undead, or 'differently animated.' This ontological category emerges from the world of popular culture in which the 'zombie canon has a distinctive place. In drawing together the interpretation of popular culture and international politics, Drezner provides much food for thought--the food in this case being human flesh, of which zombies are notoriously fond... [D]rezner elucidates the often-arcane world of international theory in an interesting and highly amusing way. He also shows how close the relationship between politics and popular culture is, how the latter can convey social and political critique in the most unlikely ways, and why satire remains such an important form of that critique."--Stephanie Lawson, Times Higher Education "Juxtaposing George A. Romero with Donald Rumsfeld to make real-world 'predictions,' Daniel W. Drezner's Theories of International Politics & Zombies ... explores feasible scenarios for the political stage contrasted with an undead threat, the objective being to render just 'how valid--or how rotten--such scenarios might be.' No man seems better qualified for this expose than Drezner, whose bio credentials list him as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Zombie Research Society."--Fangoria "In addition to wargaming various zombie scenarios, Drezner's book serves as an entertaining primer on the distinctions between several theories of international politics."--Katherine Mangu-Ward, Reason "In the end, Drezner's task is to lead a tour through academic Graceland, pretending political theories are serious business, while mocking academia's obsession with political theories, which any person with common sense knows too often fail to predict real world outcomes. A political science book about zombies is funny not because of the zombies, but because political science treats them like everything else. The juxtaposition of the two brings out the best in both."--Jessica Palmer, Biophemera blog "[Theories] of International Politics and Zombies is clever, nicely dissecting the strengths and weaknesses of different theories and offering observations about how, for instance, constructivists should destroy all previously published-zombie-apocalypse movies, lest people actually act as selfishly as most characters in those films do. While most zombie narratives start after government has failed, Drezner is far more optimistic that through cooperation, humanity would survive a zombie outbreak."--Samantha Nelson, A.V. Club "Smart, funny, creative, and thought provoking, Theories of International Politics and Zombies is a worthwhile and engaging read, and is essential reading for all political leaders if the fight against zombies is ever to be won."--Sara Yasin, LSE British Politics and Policy blog "[A]n amusing primer on IR theory, a comprehensible introduction to the tenets of liberalism, neo-conservatism, social constructivism, bureaucratic politics, realpolitik, and insight into their plausible responses to a new type of threat."--San Francisco Book Review "It's attractive quality is, of course, its flesh-eating meta-theme, but the work is successful for its clear, comparative introduction to international relations theory... Drezner's work frequently leaves the reader hungry for more discussion."--Choice "Overall, this is an accessible first introduction for students unfamiliar with the philosophical side of international relations."--Christopher Housenick, Political Studies Review "Drezner's easy prose and simple explanations will make his book a favorite among college students, and academics will appreciate his consistent references and bibliography. The simplicity of the book and the theme of zombies will likely make international politics less intimidating and more accessible to beginners."--Anna B.Creagh, Leonardo Reviews

Daniel Drezner has found a wonderful way to address the subject of zombies. Everybody who reads scientific papers from time to time, should find his descriptions a delightful distraction.

Some quotes to give an idea of the style:
"The rare nature of zombie outbreaks make statistical approaches unsuitable."
"Table 1: A 2x2 Table, as Required in all Policical Science Research"
"If confronted with the exogenous shock of the undead, constructivists would undoubtedly argue that zombies are what humans make of them."
"Indeed, one concern would be that the initial neoconservative response to a zombie outbreak would be to invade Iraq again out of force of habit."
And in the end "clearly, further research is needed" :-)

The content itself is utterly useless - as humor has to be. Well done!
(for me it was a nice guide to some well done zombie movies)

Als Politikwissenschaftler bin ich extrem langweilige und nervtötende Literatur über die Theorien der IB gewohnt. Dieses Werk - von einem offensichtlichen Nerd aus Leidenschaft geschrieben - schafft es, unter Benutzung des allgegenwärtigen Themas "Zombies" die internationale Kooperation von Staaten, anhand der unterschiedlichen theoretischen Paradigmen (bspw. Liberalismus, Realismus etc.), zu simulieren. Dass er dabei teilweise übertreibt oder die Theorien vereinfacht ist für all jene Studenten relevant, die dieses Buch für die Einführungsveranstaltung im Bachelor "Einführung in die Theorien der IB" nutzen wollen. Lasst die Finger von diesem Buch und lernt die Folien des Profs und lest seine 2-3 Lieblingstexte aufmerksam durch. Das reicht.
