Ernest R. May, Charles Warren Professor of History at Harvard University, is one of the world's leading authorities on the history of international relations whose published work during the last forty years has made a major impact on the study of both national and world affairs.
Rethinking International Relations is a collection of eleven of his essays, mostly from his writings published in widely scattered places, and thirty-five essays which evaluate his contribution by his former students at Harvard University, where he has taught since the 1950s. Both Professor May's own writings and the tribute by his students attest to the stature and influence of a major historian of our time.
Professor May's work is multidimensional. 'He is a narrative historian who is open to, and has made use of, theoretical frameworks developed by social scientists; he is a multilingual, multiarchival researcher familiar with the intricacies of European, Asian, and Latin American diplomacy, but he has also delved deeply into domestic politics and public opinion in the United States and other countries; he has taken the lead in developing the field of intelligence history, focusing on highly secretive areas of decision-making, but his work has been characterized by a strong concern with social and economic forces underlying public policy; he is relentless in pursuing empirical data but, at the same time, he has offered bold speculations about national and international history.' - Akira Iriye, editor ~ from the Preface
