5.0 out of 5 stars A very useful read for students of international relations, 18 Aug. 2010
In this book Dr. Nayef-Al Rodhan, a leading scholar in both neuroscience and geostrategy, suggests a new, comprehensive theory of International Relations entitled "Symbiotic Realism". He goes beyond conventional IR theory by incorporating dimensions that are usually missing, including gender, climate change, culture, collective identities and ITC. Additionally, the book carefully reviews and criticises existing approaches to international relations, which can be very useful to any student of international relations. This is a well written book which is accessible to everyone. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nayef R.F. Al-Rodhan, Neo-statecraft and Meta-geopolitics: Reconciliation of Power, Interests and Justice in the 21st Century, 18 Aug. 2010
This book it as a very comprehensive examination of the challenges statecraft faces today in a globalised world. One chapter I particularly liked emphasises the importance of finding ways to reconciling the many conflicting interests and to aim for justice ("just power"), not only because of moral reasons, but because this is in the long-term interest of the state to guarantee his survival. As Dr. Al-Rodhan's other writings, this book builds on insights into human nature he has gained from neuroscience. Even if you are not into security studies, this book is well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nayef R.F. Al-Rodhan, Sustainable History and the Dignity of Man: A Philosophy of History and Civilisational Triumph, 18 Aug. 2010
This book makes you think, understand and look beyond our daily routines of the day. Dr Nayef Al-Rodhan proposes a new theory of history outlining how life on earth can be sustained and how dignity can be achieved. In addition to proposing a new theory of history, it touches upon many other important philosophical issues, including the big picture of how life came into existence ("where are we?"), of who we are and why we are here. Mind-expanding and fascinating.
