Realism, idealism, and international politics : a reinterpretation by Martin Griffiths ( Book )
19 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
International relations is a discipline dominated by the debate between the realist and idealist paradigms. This book provides the most comprehensive critical review of the realist tradition to date. It looks closely at the terms 'realism' and 'idealism' and in doing so uncovers a broad range of interesting questions. Why, for example, do political realists see anarchy as being incompatible with international society? Why is idealism associated with unfounded hopes about the future? What about the past and the present? Realism explains inter-state behaviour in terms of the fundamental difference between 'domestic' and 'international' forms of government. The realist paradigm, as conventionally understood, conjures up the grim view that beyond the borders of sovereign presence, politics is not about potential moral progress, but survival. This book argues, contrary to conventional wisdom, that political realism is not a meaningless term. Martin Griffiths attempts to re-evaluate the terms 'realism' and 'idealism' through a detailed critical examination of the 'grand theorists' traditionally associated with realism, Hans Morgenthau and Kenneth Waltz. He concludes that they could more properly be categorized as idealists. Morgenthau's work, he argues, suffers from the shortcomings of 'nostalgic idealism' and Waltz's from those of 'complacent idealism'. In contrast, Hedley Bull's analysis of international society is based on a more realistic understanding of world politics. Martin Griffiths' book provides a compelling basis for conceiving international politics as a 'rule-governed' arena among states. It will be read with interest by scholars and advanced students of international relations

International relations theory for the twenty-first century : an introduction by Martin Griffiths ( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
International Relations theory has been the site of intense debate in recent years. A decade ago it was still possible to divide the field between three main perspectives - Realism, Liberalism, and Marxism. Not only have these approaches evolved in new directions, they have been joined by a number of new 'isms' vying for attention, including feminism and constructivism. International Relations Theory for the Twenty-First Century is the first comprehensive textbook to provide an overview of all the most important theories within international relations. Written by an international team of experts in the field, the book covers both traditional approaches, such as realism and liberal internationalism, as well as new developments such as constructivism, poststructuralism and postcolonialism. The book's comprehensive coverage of IR theory makes it the ideal textbook for teachers and students who want an up-to-date survey of the rich variety of theoretical work and for readers with no priorexposure to the subject
Anti-Americanism : history, causes, and themes ( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Why do people hate America and Americans? This multi-volume set aims to become the definitive contribution to the field of anti-American studies. Each volume concentrates on a particular theme; each 10,000-word article, written by an international expert, addresses a particular question. Taken together, they deal at length and in depth with a phenomenon which is frequently but unreflectingly mentioned in the media. The essays in Volume One explore various possible causes of anti-Americanism, such as American multi-national corporations, America's stance on the environment and the promotion of American values abroad. When did anti-American feeling start and how has it changed through history? Volume Two examines key periods from the founding fathers to the Cold War and the War Against Terror. What forms does anti-Americanism take in countries round the world? Volume Three surveys different sorts of anti-American feeling in a range of countries and regions from the Middle East to Latin America, from Western Europe to the Far East, and from Russia to North America itself. Why is anti-Americanism currently so strong?
The rise of anti-Americanism by Brendon O'Connor ( Book )
9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Examining anti-Americanism and its principal sources, this study details how the Bush administration has provoked a recent upsurge in anti-Americanism with its stances on a range of issues from the Kyoto Protocol to the war in Iraq. This study also highlights how the spread of anti-Americanism reflects deeper cultural and political anxieties about Americanization and American global power that will persist beyond the Bush administration."--BOOK JACKET
