Kal J. Holsti has made an important contribution to the comparative analysis of foreign policy change and to the general area of international theory. The recent and dramatic events in the Soviet Union and East Europe, as well as those in several other states, underline the seminal importance of the analysis of change both in international relations and in the comparative study of foreign policy. The book also makes an important contribution to the development of international theory - a field that has blossomed in the last decade to the point where it is now probably the largest and most vibrant sub-field within international relations. This important book presents in one volume a carefully edited selection of Professor Holsti's essays - many of which are not easily available - and will be essential reading for all students and instructors concerned with international theory, foreign policy analysis and international relations.

Review:

`This carefully edited selection of Holsti's essays on international theory, foreign policy, and international relations makes a significant contribution to the development of international theory as well as to the analysis of change in international relations.' -- World Affairs Council `Altogether this (re) publication is both representative and indicative of the valuable contribution Holsti has made and continues to make to the study of international relations.' -- Journal of Peace Research `Holsti is self critical throughout these chapters, evaluating his own intellectual evolution with surprising candour, explicitly rejecting some of his own long held assumptions. One gets the feel of the scope and breadth of one scholar's mind, wide ranging constantly questioning, concluding, confirming and revising across three decades.' -- Canadian Journal of Political Science
