PS 542 Contemporary Theories of World Politics

Surveys concepts and arguments from various theoretical traditions in international relations. Topics are drawn from the ongoing debate between the realist and liberal schools of thought, as well as the challenges posed by radical, normative, and critical international relations theory. Theories will be examined mainly for their insights on issues of war and peace. Also offered for undergraduate-level credit as PS 442 and may be taken only once for credit. Expected preparation: PS 441.
