We would like to thank Sarah Iles, our editor at Oxford University Press, and our previous editors Kirsty Reade, Ruth Anderson, and Nicki Sneath. Throughout the lifespan of the book and its three previous editions they have been extremely positive about the book and their input has been invaluable. We would also like to thank several research assistants who have helped on various editions: Jodie Hobbs (first edition), Madeleine Fagan (second edition), and Sarah Then Bergh (fourth edition).

Our final debt is to our students. It would be unthinkable to be involved in a project of this kind without the shared experience of talking about theory to excited (and sometimes frustrated) students. In a very particular sense, the three editors directly shared this experience in that Steve taught both Tim and Milja; the former at the University of East Anglia in the late 1980s and the latter at Aberystwyth in the early 2000s. This book will have succeeded if it can stimulate the minds of the next generation to engage critically with the ever-changing discipline of International Relations.
