J. D. B. Miller and International Relations

  • R. J. Vincent


Bruce Miller is a robust and sophisticated realist in his approach to international politics. His realism has two aspects, substantive and procedural. The substantive aspect is his view of international politics as ordered by certain inevitable regularities. The procedural aspect is his disdain for the elaborate methodological paraphernalia which those who are not realists place between themselves and their subject-matter.
