Abstract

Challenging the received notions of international relations theory about perhaps its most central tradition - Realism, Molloy demonstrates how a belief in a mode of theorisation has distorted Realism, forcing the theory of power politics in International Relations into a paradigmatic strait-jacket that is simply inadequate and inappropriate to the task of encompassing its diversity. This invigorated new angle offers a counter-memory of Realism that re-asserts the originality and power of Realist insights into the nature of power and international society.
