`Amoureux and Steele have put together a superb collection of essays which simultaneously exhibits the coherence of a single thematic and great originality in the individual contributions. Reflections by academics confronting their own scholarship creates an honest, insightful, and arresting book. This volume provides anyone interested in the craft of good IR scholarship with an essential starting point.' - Professor Anthony F Lang, Jr, University of St Andrews, UK
'This is an exciting book that should provoke, disturb, stimulate and resonate with scholars' thoughts and experiences in writing international relations.ã In thoroughly dissecting both the most obvious and the most intimate aspects of reflexivity, the authors reveal the roughness as well as the eloquence that can emanate from our attempts to grasp the meaning of our selves and our scholarship.' - Professor Cecelia Lynch, University of California, Irvine, USA
