The science of international relations is a rudimentary science. The attempt to describe, let alone explain, in a systematic manner the ever-changing international scene has baffled mankind down the ages and will continue to baffle them for ages to come, if there are ages to come. But in the world today the wages of error is death, and to discard any possibility of better understanding would be inexcusable. That is why even unlikely routes to better understanding are worth exploring. It has been the aim of this book to familiarise the reader with some of the modern scientific and quantitative approaches and to suggest that they are perhaps not quite so unlikely or unpromising as might be thought at first sight.
