In this book Bradley Klein draws on recent debates in international relations theory to raise important questions about the nature of strategic studies and nuclear deterrence. In clear and uncluttered language, he explores the links among modernity, state-building and strategic violence, and argues that American foreign policy, and NATO, undertook a set of dynamic political practices to make and remake world order in the image of Western identity. The book will be of interest to students of international relations theory, strategic studies, peace studies, and US foreign policy.Read more
- Short, trendy book on the ideas behind the West's nuclear strategy and deterrence theory, and the political practices used
- Addresses the latest debates in IR theory, taking a critical 'postmodernist' line
- Klein's work on this subject is well known and respected, and appears here in book form for the first time (spends much of his time as a golf journalist!)
