Political Science Complete
Includes full-text journals, reference books and thousands of conference papers covering political topics with a worldwide focus, including international relations, political theory, comparative politics, humanitarian issues, law and legislation, and non-governmental organizations. Also includes a subject-specific thesaurus of more than 26,000 terms.
Use this for historical topics. Add terms like "foreign relations," "international relations," "diplomacy." or terms for specific events to help narrow your results.
The subject filter can be helpful. Look for "International relations" or "Political Science." The Library Catalog filter is the best way to limit your results to books. Books are a great way to gain a sense of scope for a topic (instead of just piecing together very specific articles).
Might prove useful in finding primary source material or for articles on political history. Also includes scholarly articles for international relations, but Library Search will have more complete results.
This is our largest collection of both national and international law review articles so is a good choice for topics about the law and international relations.
