The current political conflicts in Somalia and Russia make the reappearance of this book as relevant as ever. Politics and Culture in International History illumines world politics by identifying the causes of conflict and war and assessing the validity of schemes for peace and unity. Bozeman maintains that political systems are grounded in cultures; thus, international relations are by definition hitercultural relations. She deals exclusively with the thought patterns of the world's literate civilizations and societies between the fourth millenium B.C. and the fifteenth century A.D.

In a substantial new introduction, Bozeman analyzes world politics over the last half century, showing how the interplay of politics and culture has intensified. She notes that the world's assembly of states is no longer held together by substantive accords on norms, purposes, and values, but by loose agreements on the use offorms, techniques, and words. The causes and effects of these changes between the 1950s and 1990s are assayed by Bozeman.

About the Author:

Adda B. Bozeman is professor emeritus of international relations at Sarah Lawrence College. Among her many books are Regional Conflicts around Geneva; Conflict in Africa: Concepts and Realities; The Future of Law in a Multicultural World; and Strategic Intelligence and Statecraft.

Review:

Roy Godson, director of the National Strategy Information Center, has said: "[Politics and Culture in International History]  is a classic in the study of international relations. It was, and remains, invaluable to students and practitioners of statecraft."  It will be of significant interest to historians, sociologists, and political theorists.

"A masterful sketch of the predispositions toward international politics at the time modern world took shape . . . sagacious, luminous, and opportune. . . ."

—Harold D. Lasswell, Saturday Review

"If an antidote is needed to correct the contemporary-mindedness  in the present-day study of international relations, Politics and Culture in International History is now the strong medicine on the market."

—Charles A. McClelland, American Political Review
