PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Peace & War: A Theory of International Relations em Peace and War em by Raymond Aron is one of the greatest books ever written on international relations Aron s starting point is the state of nature that exists between nations a condition that differs essentially from the civil state that holds within political communities Ever keeping this brute fact about the life of nations in mind and ranging widely over political history and many disciplines Aron develops the essential analytical tools to enable us to think clearly about the stakes and possibilities of international relations .
In his first section Theory Aron shows that while international relations can be mapped and probabilities discerned no closed global science of international relations is anything more than a mirage In the second part Sociology Aron studies the many ways various subpolitical forces influence foreign policy He emphasizes that no rigorous determinism is at work politics and thus the need for prudent statesmanship are inescapable in international relations In part three History Aron offers a magisterial survey of the twentieth century He looks at key developments that have had an impact on foreign policy and the emergence of what he calls universal history which brings far flung peoples into regular contact for the first time In a final section Praxeology Aron articulates a normative theory of international relations that rejects both the bleak vision of the Machiavellians who hold that any means are legitimate and the naivete of the idealists who think foreign policy can be overcome .
This new edition of Peace and War includes an informative introduction by Daniel J Mahoney and Brian C Anderson situating Aron s thought in a new post Cold War context and evaluating his contribution to the study of politics and international relations
