"We may wonder why, exactly, it has taken so long for the field of International Relations to not only notice but to properly and comprehensively analyze the overwhelming influence of emigre scholars upon the evolution of IR as a discipline. Yet even if you are not a big believer in fate, you will come away from this fascinating, historically-rich, and theoretically sophisticated volume inspired that the first-ever 'take' on this topic is one that does justice to the European impact on the 'American' field of International Relations. This volume traces, contextualizes, and then situates into the present day these connections in lively detail. Roesch has gathered together a forceful set of contributions, and contributors, for this volume that complement one another perfectly in sequence, content, and argument. Scholars interested in the history, and historiography, of the IR 'discipline' in their research and in their courses now have a transformative and imperative work at-the-ready that reorients our understanding of no less than the entire history of the development of the 'American' IR field. Chapters in this volume delineate the influences that continue to shape our understanding of International Relations today from the conventional to critical, from mainstream to the dissident. Emigre Scholars breaks through the 'silence' on this topic not merely with an additional voice on the history of IR, but with a sonic boom."
