'Every decade, an International Relations book comes along that leaves a profound and lasting mark on the discipline. International Security in Practice suggests a paradigmatic new 'logic of practicality', a methodological approach for empirically studying practices, and an innovative theory of practice of security communities. It also shows lucidly and effectively why NATO and Russia failed to constitute a security community after the Cold War, what was NATO's role in such failure, and what can still be practically done to 'seduce' Russia back into the communitarian mode of pursuing security. This brilliant book pushes the boundaries of IR theory forward - read it!' Emanuel Adler, Andrea and Charles Bronfman Chair of Israeli Studies, University of Toronto
'Instead of abstract speculation, Vincent Pouliot delivers hands-on analysis. This fully-fledged Bourdieusian practice analysis is a significant contribution towards making International Relations a truly social science. Should be the next big thing in constructivist IR.' Iver B. Neumann, Director of Research, Norwegian Institute of International Affairs and Professor of Russian Studies, Oslo University
'In sum, Pouliot's book is a very important and innovative piece of scholarship.' Tuomas Forsberg, Europe-Asia Studies
This book analyzes relations between NATO and Russia since the end of the Cold War to draw lessons about how former enemies can move beyond entrenched rivalry at the diplomatic level. Paying special attention to security practitioners' viewpoints, Pouliot shows how persisting power struggles have limited progress between the two former enemies.See all Product description
