Introduction to This Page

This page is meant to supplement the syllabus and lectures for my undergraduate course "Introduction to International Relations" (PSCI 3810) at the University of North Texas. It is organized along the same outline as the reading list for the course, to help students who wish to go beyond the original assigned readings.

Obviously, this page -- like any other page on the Web -- is a work in progress. I will do my best to keep it up-to-date throughout the semester. Unfortunately, many of these links may be redirected or even removed from the Web by the end of the semester (one semester I found that over one-third of all of the links on one of my pages broke between September and December). I would appreciate being informed via email if you find any broken links on this page, so that I can attempt to fix or delete the link in question.

Note that this page is in need of serious updating - I have not checked many of these resources for up to a decade, and only in 2018 have I merged them all into one place where I can start organizing them and verifying that they still exist.
