Coercion, Cooperation, and Ethics in International Relations by Richard Ned Lebow

By Richard Ned Lebow

This quantity brings jointly the hot essays of Richard Ned Lebow, one of many top students of diplomacy and US international coverage.


Lebow's paintings has concentrated at the instrumental price of ethics in international coverage selection making and the disastrous effects which stick with while moral criteria are flouted. in contrast to such a lot realists who've thought of moral concerns beside the point in states' calculations in their nationwide curiosity, Lebow has argued that self curiosity, and therefore, nationwide curiosity can purely be formulated intelligently inside a language of justice and morality. The essays right here construct in this pervasive subject matter in Lebow's paintings by means of featuring his major and compelling critique of options of deterrence and compellence, illustrating empirically and normatively how those options usually produce effects counter to those who are meant. The final element of the e-book, on counterfactuals, brings jointly one other set of comparable articles which proceed to probe the connection among ethics and coverage. They accomplish that through exploring the contingency of occasions to indicate the subjective, and sometimes self-fulfilling, nature of the frameworks we use to guage coverage offerings.
