Format: Paperback
Compiled over several years and indefatigably translated from the original, this book is a must have and must read for all scholars of the International Relations discipline where the practical tends to eclipse the abstract. This anthology of classical, pre-modern and modern theoretical works will provide all students of the subject with the theoretical and normative tools to make sense of the contemporary international system. This is probably the most important and most useful book you will ever buy.
