This subject was a lot of fun, and dealt with some really interesting concepts such as the role of the state in the modern world, the EU, and war/terrorism. It also provided a really great foundation for a lot of important political theories, which were more clearly explained in practical terms in this subject than in others I've taken. Daniel McCarthy is a really great lecturer, and very approachable. I do wish there were more specific yet brief case studies for each concept/theory explained, but there is only so much time in a semester. My advice: stay on top of lectures, do the readings and google concepts you don't grasp immediately before tutes. If you walk in with little understanding, it's hard to catch up.
Quite a good subject, you don't need to have studied International politics before to take this subject. but even if you have you'll probably learn a few new things. The first few weeks is basically a brief history of international politics since hunter gatherer times. Which seems like a difficult task, but its done well.
