Strategic Choice and International Relations synopsis
The strategic choice approach has a long history in internationalrelations. In an area often rented by competing curricula, Robert Powell is the best accepted and disputed knowledge among many theories. Together with the contributors to this volume, provide a unified perspective, beginning with a simple insight: students of internationalrelations want to explain the choices made by representatives - be they states, parties, ethnic groups, companies, leaders or individuals.
This synthesis presents three new benefits: first, the strategic interaction between actors is the unit of analysis, not the mandates or policies; secondly, these interactions are now being usefully organized into analytical schemes on which theoretical experiments can be based; and thirdly, Develop a set of systematic "bets" on the most productive methods for analyzing interactions. Together these elements allow the practical application of theories that can apply to countless special situations, such as individuals protesting environmental degradation, Governments seeking to control nuclear weapons, or the United Nations, which is trying to mobilize Member States for international peacekeeping.
In addition to the editors, the six contributors to this book, all prominent scholars of internationalrelations, are Jeffrey A. Fredin, James D.
Morro, Ronald Rogovsky, Peter Goric, Miles Keller, Arthur A. Stain.
Their work is an invaluable introduction to researchers and students of international relations, economists, and government decision-makers.
