    arre its a virus. give some other link for 6th edition.
  • @dheeraj4 Yeah, it is.
    I chanced a download which came off at a snail's pace, seems to be a server problem.
    You can try 4e (2008) which is available as epub, convert it to pdf (if needed)
    IMHO it isn't a must-read.

    What ? :o
    In that case, there's no other working link. May b we should stick with 4e else buy from Flipkart or Amazon.
    It is a bit pricey at ₹800 something.
  • no 6edition is somewhere around 4000 bucks. and i have heard its a very good book for psir paper2

    ok, i'll download 4th ed. couldn't download the 6th one
    सत्यमेव जयते
  • is there much difference between 6th e and 4th e ?
  • @24madaeve I haven't read it. So, can't say.
    But I guess @Panditji has already shared his views on Baylis & Smith in the other thread on Pol. Sc.
    Now you've a more informed choice.

    Some good news:
    I was able to download the green cover from the link I gave earlier, turns out to be a book, not a virus :wink:
    But the only irritant was the server of that online library, some glitch may b.
    Ergo, the pdf I downloaded has till 28th chapter, a li'l bit of 29th out of 33.
    And the size is 254 MB as against 327 MB.

    Link: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B3Xyi4aAT_lwRFV2aFFGOVJzcEk&usp=sharing

    That should do, for now. I just saved ₹4000 :blush: I hope. Else, you can always find in ORN.
    @dheeraj4 The 6e is available on the above link, if u want.

    Merry Xmas guys, will upload the full pdf as & when available, by New Year 2016, may b :smile:
  • @Spectator great job man. Thanks a lot. U have been of great help. Remaining part is unavailable or it is getting downloaded at very slow speed?

    Anytime!
    Yeah, it is available but due to that damn server, it stops mid-way, earlier it stopped at 3/6/12 MB but fortunately late at night, I was able to download this much.
    Will try again, promise :smile:

    Now waiting for @Spectator to provide us the link for while book. :)
  • @24madaeve @dheeraj4
    About damn time :smile:

    Link: The Globalization of World Politics, Sixth Edition, 2014

    Download Options:

    A. 327 MB: As it was, from the online library, unabridged.

    B. 274 MB: Revamped version! Some chapters in the unabridged version weren't in order, had to b rearranged.
    Page No.s 216 & 360 of that 327 MB file will further endorse my point. A few blank scanned pages were removed leading to a reduced file size. Also, bookmarks were added.

    C. 274 MB: A .zip archive, it has the entire e-book sorted chapter-wise.

    By d way, there's no difference b/w B & C as such. Just download whichever version you want. I'm going for C.
    Keep sharing! Happy reading!
  • @Spectator thanx for goin thru all d trouble. cud u point out d important chapters?
    सत्यमेव जयते
  • haha, spot on @dheeraj4 , indeed a back-breaking task.
    But I'd like to thank @24madaeve who created this thread and I stopped by, pure happenstance.
    In the end, it was win-win for all.

    Well, I'm the wrong person to ask, given my current proficiency levels. :smile:
    Yet to read a chapter from this book. Besides, I'll be using it for value addition only.
    Right now I've got my hands full with other prep commitments.

    But a few senior pros (I call them Giants of Pol Sc. on ForumIAS) who've appeared Mains multiple times with this optional can help u way much better than me. You may tag them or drop a PM and more often than not, they should respond provided they find it worthwhile. It all depends on how you ask your query (just saying).

    It behoves me not to tag / name anyone here, neither is it the right thread to do so.
    But I've compiled an exhaustive list. Do tell if need be, will drop a PM.
    Else, just dig a li'l bit deeper in the Pol. Sc. section of ForumIAS (will do you a world of good).
    Cheers!

    Thank you.
  • @Spectator @dheeraj4 yar I am unable to open chapter 8-15. are you guys able to open them ?

    Adobe is unable to those chapters bhai. Can u share ur files for those chapters with me?
  • May b PDF-XChange or Foxit can open them for ya. Give 'em a try. They won't let ya down.
    Anyhoo, here's d link: Baylis [8-15]
  • @Spectator yar i tried opening them with foxit but failed. I even tried to repair those files but nothing happened. That's why asked you for those files. Thanks man.
  • I would like to form a group of three members to share and evaluate polsci optional answers. I don't have whatsap application .It is better to form an email group to share answers. My plan is to study particular topic and write answers for previous year questions.
