David Boucher uses the ideas of western philosophy's most significant thinkers to trace the history of political theory in international relations. His new thematic approach challenges current conceptions both of how relations between communitites, nations, and states transformed, and of the history of thought in international relations, integrating contemporary theorists into his analysis. Ideally suited for courses on the history of thought in international
relations or the application of historical thinkers to contemporary international relations, it will also be of interest to anyone studying the history of political thought.
