Module Outline

This module enables you to engage systematically with the Marxist tradition of theorising about international relations. It provides an introduction to Marx's own thought, using selections from primary texts, and then examines how later Marxist writers have applied and developed these ideas across a range of themes in international studies, including imperialism, the Cold War, international political economy and globalisation theory.
