The Political Discourse of Anarchy: A Disciplinary History of International Relations by Brian C. Schmidt
Article
IF POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC ORGANIZATION BEYOND THE NATION-state is to prevail in the future, as it well might, what is to be the nature of relations between and among supranational units or regional blocs? Will such relations buttress or endanger world peace? To such broad questions there are no answers. But to a derivative set of more specific ques...
Article
Most of the significant philosophies of history, ” Pitirim Sorokin observed, and “most of the intelligible interpretations of historical events…have…appeared either in periods of serious crisis, catastrophe, and transitional disintegration, or immediately More or alter such periods.” The twentieth century has been an age of continuing crisis in wor...
Article
Today, the United States is taken by many to be today's hegemon. At present, US hegemony is seen to extend beyond the management of the international economy to include rule making and management in areas of international development, international security, peacekeeping, state-building, nation-building, democratic transition and human rights. The...
Article
In many important ways the activities of pirates menacing the world historically are analogous to those of international terrorists menacing the world today. This essay examines the history of piracy as it has occurred and recurred from ancient times to the present day. Emphasis is on conditions conducive to piracy's flourishing and strategies and...
Chapter
Dramatic world events between September 11, 2001 and March 2003 set relations between the United States and its European allies on an historic roller coaster. The September 11 terrorist attacks called forth an immediate and sincere outpouring of sympathy from Europe, and strong commitments of unity and mutual assistance from their governments. NATO...
Article
The point of departure for this study is the observation that today a forceful reassertion of non-Western cultures is occurring in many parts of the former European colonial world. Following from this, the study deals with three questions: (1) how is such a reassertion of non-Western cultures possible even after several hundred years of Western col...
Article
That the discipline of International Relations is again in disarray was the prevailing theme of a seminar titled Visions of International Relations, held at the University of South Carolina in autumn 1998. This essay is at once a reflection on the discussions that took place at the seminar and a representation of views that I offered as a participa...

Article
perspectives that are most at variance with Western formulations. Non-radical, Third-World views - those of the moderates, modernists, secularists, and globalists, and of the westernized and socialscience socialized products of American and European graduate schools - are not discussed in this essay. Westerners would find the views of these moderat...
Article
Deals with definitions of 'culture' and civilisation' and the way in which these two entities can be related. The author takes an historical look at the rise and fall of various civilisations and the interactions which preceded these phenomena. The potential for civilisations clashing in contemporary and future times is examined in the light of pas...
Article
This review builds on a renewed interest in the history of relations among states and peoples among International Relations scholars. Disappointed by the relative unproductiveness of more formalistic modes of analysis, there is a return to the History of International Relations, a core subject in the curricula of European universities. Since the pa...
Article
Peacekeeping policies aimed at preventing or halting armed conflict and peace building aimed at eliminating the causes of war are both purported functions of the United Nations Organization and specialized agencies. UN peacekeeping efforts have been increasingly successful, largely because of external factors - most notably the re-establishment of...
Article
International regimes are attitudinal phenomena. They are thus subjective and exist primarily as participants' understandings, expectations or convictions about legitimate, appropriate or moral behavior. Regimes are identified and their tenets described by studying records of participants' perceptions gleaned either from interview transcripts or fr...
Article
Decision formation in the Community has reflected an adaptability responding to different times and circumstances. The process of decisionmaking has grown in capacity, complexity and sophistication. It evolves slowly, however, to allow the diversity of its component parts to adjust and adapt. The actual EC decisional performance record indicates bo...
Article
The international system of production, distribution and consumption of food is managed by states, corporations and international organizations. International organizations play minor roles in the food regime, principally as arenas for policy coordination among state bureaucracies and as agents for modest multilateral programs. All of these actors...
Article
The market-oriented focus of the global food regime, as it functioned from the late 1940s to the early 1970s, has proved inadequate. Preoccupation with perfecting markets led food policy makers to underemphasize the need for increased production in the Third World. It also led them to exaggerated attention to short-term surplus disposal and too lit...
Article
This volume was conceived in the aftermath of the international concern about world food shortages in 1973-74. In April, 1975, at a meeting of the Board of Editors of International Organization, a special issue was authorized to examine ''world food institutions.'' Early chapters were prepared for 1976 meetings of the International Studies Associat...
Article
In an operational sense, European integration amounts to the transnational harmonization and standardization of diverse national laws, practices, and norms. Insight into the integrative process in Western Europe, therefore, can be gleaned by looking into problems encountered during attempts at transnational harmonization. Case studies of national a...

Article
The relevance of transaction analysis to the study of regional integration has been the subject of controversy. In dialectical fashion though, this controversy has produced improved understanding. Early exponents, who tended at times to overestimate the efficacy of the transaction approach, have accepted its limitations, and, by the same token, som...
Article
The object of this study is to determine how close to, or how far from, international integration France and the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) moved between 1954 and 1965. Results presented here are revealing though probably not astonishing: While some indices of international integration suggest growing assimilation between Frenchmen...
