He Was A Pioneer In Establishing International Relations, And The Systematic Study Of Statecraft And War, As A Major Academic Discipline.

Fox Came Away From His Activities During This Period Convinced That The Framing Of International Relations Theory Should Be Around The Proposition That, "If Man Is To Have The Opportunity To Exercise Some Measure Of Rational Control Over His Destiny, The Limits Of The Possible And The Consequences Of The Desirable Both Have To Be Investigated."
