As a quarry for data, testing-ground for theory and site of investigation, history has been one of the unacknowledged partners of International Relations. The last two decades has witnessed both a substantial increase in the scope of historical IR scholarship and in the sophistication of methodological approaches to history, accompanied by a rapidly increasing (and multidisciplinary) interest in the history of international thought, as well as an ever more sophisticated historiography of the discipline itself.

This Major Work is structured in a way to engage with the key recent developments in the field of international relations, providing the reader with an overview of approaches to history in IR; the history of international thought/historiography; and the emergence of the state and the state system.

Volume One: Doing Historical International Relations

Volume Two: The History of International Thought

Volume Three: The State in Historical Perspective

Volume Four: The State System in Historical Perspective

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The ambitious four-volume work Historical International Relations edited by Halvard Leira and Benjamin de Carvalho is an important contribution to the literature on international relations and likely to remain a standard collection on the topic for many years. It is comprehensive, well organized and encompasses many of the classic articles in the field by leading European and American scholars. Each of the volumes should be required reading for anyone who wishes to understand the origins and evolution of theory or practice in the discipline of international relations since the beginning of the 20th century to the present."

-- Richard W. Mansbach
With the appearance of this volume of previously published texts the historical turn in IR has come of age. For me there are two points that stand out from this marvellous collection. The first is how much excellent historical IR research has been written in the last decade or so, and what an excellent job the editors have done in picking out a strong representative sample of this scholarship. The second is the deep roots of the `historical turn' in IR. Leira and de Carvalho have reminded us of this last point by republishing some important older classics that deserve to be reread by a new generation of IR scholars.
-- Lucian M. Ashworth
