Summary

Essays on the early disciplinary history of international relations.

What were the guiding themes of the discipline of International Relations before World War II? The traditional disciplinary history has long viewed this time period as one guided by idealism and then challenged by realism. This book reconstructs in detail some of the formative episodes of the field’s early development and arrives at the conclusion that, in actuality, the early years of International Relations were preoccupied not with idealism and realism but with the dual themes of imperialism and internationalism. Thus, the beginnings of the discipline have resonance with the recently revived discourse of empire and the global status and policies of the United States as the world's sole superpower.

"By exposing the discipline's long-forgotten preoccupation with Western imperialism at the time of its birth, and by making a major contribution to the revision of disciplinary history, this volume is performing a major service." — Ido Oren, author of Our Enemies and US: America's Rivalries and the Making of Political Science

"Most scholars have forgotten International Relations' origins in the late nineteenth-century project of colonialism. This collection is the only source systematically connecting the history of imperialism with the rise of the field of International Relations, making it a critically important book." — Craig N. Murphy, editor of Egalitarian Politics in the Age of Globalization
