From the PublisherPower is perhaps the most basic concept in the study of world politics, but also the most elusive. Power in World Politics substantially enhances and broadens our understanding of power by bringing together accomplished scholars from varied theoretical perspectives to explore the sources and forms of power in a changing world.
Jack S. Levy, Board of Governor's Professor, Rutgers University, USA
Drawing from a variety of International Relations’ traditions and other fields and disciplines, this book contains some of the most cutting-edge and illuminating scholarship on power yet. It is no exaggeration to say, therefore, that after reading this book you will never think about power in simplistic and one-dimensional ways.
Emanuel Adler, Andrea and Charles Bronfman Professor of Israeli Studies, University of Toronto, Canada
Power is one of the most important, but also most ambiguous, concepts in Political Science and, more specifically, International Relations; this fine collection of original essays by a mixture of senior figures in the field and members of the new generation of scholars may not eliminate these ambiguities altogether, but it does illuminate the concept more effectively than any other book published this century. A fine achievement.
Chris Brown, Professor of International Relations, London School of Economics, UK
