The discipline of international relations is a fragmented one. In this book, Roger Spegele analyzes this fragmentation and suggests that the subject should be seen as engaged in a struggle among three competing conceptions: positivism-empiricism, emancipatory international relations, and political realism. He argues that scholars following these different conceptions have had different ways of understanding theory, practice and the relation between them. By focusing on this relation, Professor Spegele develops a new version of political realism, called "Evaluative Political Realism".

Book Description:

The discipline of international relations is a fragmented one. Arguing that scholars following different conceptions of the field have had different ways of understanding theory, practice and the relation between them, this text develops a new version of political realism, by focusing on the relation.

Review:

"...Spegele's ordering principles are useful, and persuasive, and his treatment of every perspective appropriately critical....this erudite and well-crafted study lives up to its advance billing as a coherent, viable, and attractive defense of realism." Robert M.A. Crawford, American Political Science Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Pbk.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In this 1996 book Roger Spegele argues that in the past international theorists have failed to recognise that there is not one conception of international relations, subdivided into different theories and approaches, but at least three wholly different conceptions of the subject. Though scholars are increasingly prepared to accept this, there is still no consensus about what to call these conceptions, how to describe them, and why they should be studied. This book attempts to fill this gap. The author first examines two conceptions of IR - positivism-empiricism and emancipatory international relations - which challenge political realism. He then defends a revised version of realism, called evaluative political realism , from challenges arising from its rivals, with the aim of defining a conception of political realism which is coherent, viable, and attractive.
