Overview

Coercion, Cooperation and Ethics in International Relations brings together the recent essays of, Richard Ned Lebow, one of the leading scholars of international relations and U.S. Foreign Policy. Lebow's work has centered on the instrumental value of ethics in foreign policy decision making and the disastrous consequences which follow when ethical standard are flouted. Unlike most realists who have considered ethical considerations irrelevant in states' calculations of their national interest, Lebow has argued that self interest, and hence, national interest can only be formulated intelligently within a language of justice and morality. The essays here build on this pervasive theme in Lebow's work by presenting his substantive and compelling critique of strategies of deterrence and compellence illustrating empirically and normatively how these strategies often produce results counter to those that are intended. Such a critique possesses a newfound relevance with the major missteps the Bush administration has made in eschewing diplomacy and exercising the it's unipolar, unilateralist will. In addition, the essays also draw on Lebow's work on the Ancient Greeks and international relations. He applies the concept of tragedy to international relations, and draws on Thucydides and the Greek playwrights to offer a very different perspective on hegemony, one that can account for both the choices the Bush administration has made and their often tragic outcomes. It offers a more useful framework for thinking about America's role in the current world and the most efficient ways of translating American power into influence. The last section of the book, on counterfactuals, brings together another set of related articles which continue to probe the relationship between ethics and policy. They do so by exploring the contingency of events to suggest the subjective, and often self-fulfilling, nature of the frameworks we use to evaluate policy choices.

With a new substantive introduction that will place the essays in the context of Lebow's comprehensive views on ethics and foreign policy, this book will be a major statement by a major thinker in international relations.
