Overview

"The questions raised are of relevance to the Indian polity although they may appear to be irreverent to some of those in its controlling positions. "
—Deccan Herald
Interpreting World Politics brings together conceptual and substantive essays on international relations by Indian and western scholars. The volume begins with a critical review of international relations theory. The following 12 chapters that comprise the second section consider a range of issues relating to the notion of an international society. These include a discussion of the concept of and prospects for international society in the post-cold war world; deterrence and balance of power as societal institutions; the roles of the NPT, the UN, and nonalignment in an evolving international society; and the globalization of economics, politics, and communication. The final section presents three case studies on regional politics and three essays on foreign policy. Combining theoretical and methodological concerns with real-world problems and issues, and bringing together distinguished contributors from all over the world, this volume will be of interest to those studying international relations, world politics, political science, and defense/strategic issues.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Essays on international relations by Indian and Western scholars are organized around four themes central to the study of world politics: international relations theory; international society; regional politics; and foreign policy. An introduction offers a critical review of international relations theory, demonstrating that its dominance by post-1945 Anglo-American studies causes it to be parochial in nature, and suggesting a basis for theoretical synthesis. No index. Acidic paper. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
