For advanced undergraduate/ graduate-level courses in Theories of International Politics or Philosophy of Science.

Unique in perspective, this text summarizes the achievements, problems, and prospects for theory in the field of international politics-with a focus on the theoretical and epistemological issues that divide the major theorists. It summarizes major theoretical approaches starting in the Middle Ages, places them in theoretical traditions, and suggests how theory evolves over time. It ends on a cautious note-praising the growing interest in the subjective dimension of the field while criticizing the wholesale rejection of empiricism by postmodernists, public choice theorists, and others.

MEDIA REVIEWS


"The book is ... complete in the sense that it captures all of the intra-disciplinary dialogues and debates currently animating the IR field (as well as dialogues and debates historically engaged). While Ferguson and Mansbach weigh into the debates with gusto, supporting some positions and rejecting others, their representation of varying points of view is informed, informative, and fair. The Elusive Quest Continues is exciting and promising ...." - Donald J. Puchala, University of South Carolina




"I think this book could emerge as the most effective, comprehensive, and (most importantly) candid assessment of our field to date." - Steven W Hook, Kent State University
