Power politics by Martin Wight( Book )

87 editions published between 1946 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This account of state-systems, which derives not from theoretical models but from the study of state-systems that have actually existed, emphasizes their moral or normative bases. It argues that a system of states presupposes a common culture. The essays deal with the concept of systems of states: the state-systems of Hellas; Hellas and Persia; the geographical and chronological boundaries of the modern states-system; international legitimacy; and triangles and duels. An introductory chapter by Hedley Bull draws the essays together and provides an account of Martin Wright's life and thought
Four seminal thinkers in international theory : Machiavelli, Grotius, Kant, and Mazzini by Martin Wight( Book )

24 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Martin Wright was one of the most profound and influential thinkers on international relations of his time, and his work is increasingly discussed, appraised, and drawn upon today." "His earlier volume of posthumously-published lectures - International Theory : The Three Traditions - is now regarded as a seminal text. That volume is here complemented and completed. In these four lectures, Wight takes the archetypal thinkers of his three traditions - Machiavelli, Grotius, and Kant - to whom he adds Mazzini, the father of all revolutionary nationalism (and so the prototype of Nehru, Nasser, and Mandela), and subjects their writings and careers to analysis and commentary."--Résumé de l'éditeur

6 editions published between 1966 and 2019 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few books in the field of International Relations (IR) that can be called iconic. Edited by Herbert Butterfield and Martin Wight, it brings together twelve papers delivered to early meetings of the British Committee on the Theory of International Politics, including several classic essays: Wight's 'Why is there no International Theory?' and 'Western Values in International Relations', Hedley Bull's 'Society and Anarchy in International Relations' and 'The Grotian Conception of International Society', and the two contributions made by Butterfield and by Wight on 'The Balance of Power'. Individually and collectively, these chapters have influenced not just the English school of international relations, but also a range of other approaches to the field of IR."
