The traditional representation of the international system as a frictional aggregation of discrete social entities has for some time been undermined by dependency theory and world systems analysis. Now, however, a subtle but important shift is taking place, and both of these theories are in turn being challenged by a more balanced structuralist approach to IR theory. Advancing a distinct conception of IR, the authors of this collection aim to supplement the purely globalist framework of the world system with a comprehensive theory of politics and the state. Each contributor seeks to establish a framework for the study of domestic and global processes as interactive structures that affect one another continuously. Their systematic attention to domestic-global interrelationships, both political and socio-economic, sets in place a new agenda for IR research.
