Innovation and transformation in international studies

This book explores the nature of, and conditions for, theoretical innovation in International Studies. Highlighting classic and new research problems, this collection of critically-minded, original essays pushes International Relations scholarship in uncharted directions. Bridging social theory and International Relations theory, it searches for sources of intellectual innovation in the everyday lives of ordinary people. The seventeen contributors are drawn from four continents and include such leading scholars as Richard Falk, James Rosenau, Yoshikazu Sakamoto and Susan Strange. Although a diverse group, they find the contemporary world order is in the throes of a structural transformation, which can be partly understood in terms of emancipation: the self-actualisation of human potential and community that looks beyond the current era in which neo-liberal globalisation is dominant, to a more democratic and just world order
