Review:

'...illuminating and provocative guide to the classics' Ethics and International Affairs

`What is beyond doubt is that this is a deeply impressive work of scholarship. It stands alone - there are other books that provide short, snappy accounts of the various writers Boucher discusses, and a small number of works that discuss in detail one or two of his subjects, but there is no
other history of international thought that comes even close to this in terms of level of sophistication or scope. It is a remarkable achievement.' Professor Chris Brown, London School of Economics, British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Apr 2000.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1998. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. David Boucher uses the ideas of western philosophy's most significant thinkers to trace the history of political theory in international relations. He examines current conceptions, offering an alternative thematic interpretation of how the most significant thinkers in the Western tradition perceived relations between communities, nations, states, and the discovery of the new world. His organizing principle centres on the idea that the great philosophers weresearching for a criterion of state conduct associated with different theories of human nature and which were used for justificatory, appraisive, and injunctive purposes. The author asserts that great thinkers from Thucydides to Marx formulated and applied these criteria to interpret the changinginternational system and concludes by showing how contemporary theories compare with and extend the themes addressed by their predecessors.
