Overview

This volume confronts the meaning of politics in international relations. While it seems unnecessary to state that politics is embedded in international relations, it is important to explore how politics informs the discipline and what limits are placed on the political. Looking at themes as wide-ranging as culture, globalization, the state and citizenship, the authors show that international relations not only has much to gain from a reconsideration of politics, but that there is also much that international relations has to offer.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Contributors in international relations and politics challenge the assumption in international relations that the meaning of politics is given and settled, arguing that politics is an essentially contested concept. They explore how the concept of politics informs international relations and examine what limits are placed on the political in the discipline. By considering contemporary issues in international relations, such as globalization, culture, the state, and citizenship, they re-examine conceptual tools used in international relations to understand politics. The editors are affiliated with the London School of Economics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
