Part of the Palgrave Studies in International Relations Series book series (PSIR)


In this book we will propose new directions for the academic study of international relations (IR). We will refer to these new directions with the term International Studies (IS). This is an interdisciplinary field of studies that is wider and more plural than IR, and which combines elements of past and present scholarship.


International Study International Relation Political Theory Interdisciplinary Approach World Politics
