Whether wittingly or unwittingly, scholars of international relations have peppered the field with a wide range of metaphors that serve as vehicles for theorizing about world affairs. Yet as pervasive as metaphors are in international relations theory, theorists’ efforts to employ metaphorical imagery to suggest new ways of thinking have been haphazard and sporadic. In this book, Michael P. Marks suggests a new metaphor with which to conceptualize international relations: the modern prison. Many of the same questions that are asked about the so-called «anarchy» of the international system are also frequently asked of life among prison inmates. Marks finds that lessons from inmate relations can be applied to the study of international affairs. This comparison between the prison and international relations reveals how the construction of human interaction in both realms is infinitely complex.

About the Author:

The Author: Michael P. Marks is Associate Professor of Politics at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. He received his Ph.D. in government from Cornell University. Among his published works are articles on European integration, classroom pedagogy, the role of celebrities in politics and a book, The Formation of European Policy in Post-Franco Spain, which focuses on the role of ideas and knowledge in international relations.

Review:

«This imaginative book offers an original argument about the power of metaphorical reasoning. Michael P. Marks shows with great creativity how much conventional international relations theory misses when it views its subject through the prism of ‘the prison’. This is an unusually creative and thought-provoking book.» (Peter J. Katzenstein, Walter S. Carpenter, Jr. Professor of International Studies, Cornell University)
