About the Authors
  • This book examines how the academic discipline of International Relations has conceptualized the world historical crisis that has shaped world affairs between the end of the First World War and the end of the 1990s. A distinguished group of contributors trace the development of the subject through the main historical periods and in relation to key debates: ethics, power and nationalism; conditions of peace; law and peaceful change; and globalization. It provides the most comprehensive survey of the discipline's past and the key issues to be faced in the future.

    • Twelve chapters by leading academics in the field of international relations
    • The only book which gives such a comprehensive survey of the discipline's past as well as an examination of the issues which will dominate the agenda in the future
    • Foreword by Professor Chris Brown, Chair of the British International Studies Association
