E-International Relations is an online academic source for free texts on a variety of topics. I was very impressed when I stumbled onto their collection. The subject matter covers a wide scope of international relations including ongoing situations in the Middle East, the conflict in Ukraine, and on Climate Change.
After reading two of their texts, “The Arab Spring of Discontent” and “Caliphates and Islamic Global Politics”, I can confirm the credibility of these sources. The books range in length and feature a variety of writers and perspectives. I was pleasantly surprised to find that their entire collection is available for free on their website. This is a fantastic resource for everyone interested in these topics. They are cleanly organized and easily accessible.
Whether you are introducing yourself to these topics, or already familiar with them, there is enough substance and diversity for everyone to find something to digest and enjoy.
