Description

This new study challenges how we think about international relations, presenting an analysis of current trends and insights into new directions. It shows how the discipline of international relations was created with a purpose of helping policy makers to build a more peaceful and just world. However, many of the current trends - post-positivism, constructivism, reflectivism, and post-modernism - share a conception of international theory that is inherently incapable of offering significant guidance to policymakers. The Power of International Theory critically examines these approaches and offers a novel conventional-causal alternative that allows the reforging of a link between international relations theory and policy-making. While recognizing the criticisms of earlier forms of positivism and behaviouralism, the book defends holistic testing of empirical principles, methodological pluralism, criteria for choosing the best theory, a notion of 'causality,' and a limited form of prediction, all of which are needed to guide policy makers. This is an essential book for all students and scholars of international relations.
