Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“These essays offer a classic introduction to our era... Whether he is discussing the vexed question of human rights... or the challenge that terrorism poses to the international order, we can learn much from his wisdom. These essays command our attention not only as an expression of the author’s enduring insights, but as a preview of our own century.”  —Survival

Studies in International Relations will remind those who were so privileged of his penetrating insight into the nature of international relations and of the humans who make them and write about them.”  —Professor Margot Light, London School of Economics

“Many of these essays made a lasting impression on those who read them when they first appeared. Mats Berdal is to be congratulated on introducing them to a new generation of readers.”  —Professor James Mayall, Cambridge University
