The Logic of World Politics in the New World Dis-Order
The book introduces readers to both realpolitik and neo-liberalism. However, rather than focusing on only one as the proper framework for analyzing international events, the text presents readers with a comparative ethos, and stresses the value of choosing the most appropriate framework for analysis in a particular situation.
The text addresses this comparative ethos and Cold War thematics, topics in world history traditionally associated with realpolitik, U.S. foreign policy as a subset of world politics, topics traditionally associated with neo-liberalism, and failures of the current nation-state system.
Students learn about globalization, international law and organizations, transnational actors, integration theory, and international security.
The Logic of World Politics in the New World Dis-Order is appropriate for both upper- and lower-division courses in world politics and international relations.
