“The book provides a critique of classical (systemic) IR theories based on their failure to predict any of the major global events that have occurred in recent times. … It aims at advancing the disciplinary discourse and helping FPA find its rightful place in the field of IR. … the book remains an interesting read for members of the FPA community who wish to see a more thorough theoretical basis to their discipline.” (Benedikt Erforth, European Review of International Studies, Vol. 3 (1), 2016)
