For upper-level undergraduate courses in International Relations and graduate-level courses in International Relations Theory Field Surveys.

Unique in approach, this text explores all aspects of an important scholarly debate over whether the contemporary theory of the balance of power as presented by Kenneth Waltz is a scientifically acceptable theory. This text allows students to examine and analyze the different views (in their original form) by all those in the debate and to come to their own conclusions. Part I presents the initial debate, including reprinted material. Parts II and III feature original pieces where scholars from different views review the debate. The resulting analyses, along with the initial exchanges, provide varying answers to the theoretical, empirical, and philosophy of science questions raised by the debate.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Vasquez and Elman have assembled a treasure of lucid, penetrating analyses of realist theorizing about the balancing of power. Framed by the question of how we should evaluate contending theories, this incisive volume should be required reading for everyone in the field, not just students enrolled in courses on international relations theory." - Gregory A. Raymond, Boise State University
