Rethinking International Relations

by Fred Halliday

Rethinking International Relations Synopsis

International Relations as an academic discipline is faced with three major convergent challenges: a historical challenge from the end of the Cold War and from new forms of internationalism and fragmentation; an institutional challenge from the growing preoccupation of other social sciences with the international; and a theoretical challenge both from these cognate disciplines and from within. Ranging widely over the discipline, Fred Halliday's book powerfully reaffirms the specificity of International Relations and lays the basis for a long-overdue reformulation.

Rethinking International Relations Press Reviews

'[C]haracteristically lucid, powerfully written and strongly argued...[The] three interrelated chapters on the end of the Cold War, together with the chapter on...revolution...are models of historically informed and theoretically sophisticated analysis...[The] chapter on...'International Relations and the End of History'...is one of the best and most interesting essays on the recent wave of fin-de-siecle agonizing...that I have seen.' - Nick Rengger, Review of International Studies
