The end of the Cold War has opened up a 'real world laboratory' in which to test and refine general theories of international relations. Using the frameworks provided by structural realism, institutionalism and liberalism, The Post-Cold War International System examines how major powers responded to the collapse of the Soviet Union and developed their foreign policies over the period of post-Cold War transition. The book argues that the democratic peace has begun to generate powerful socialisation effects, due to the emergence of a critical mass of liberal democratic states since the end of the Cold War. The trend this has produced is similar to a pattern that classical realists have interpreted as 'bandwagoning' within a unipolar power structure. Case studies of Germany, China and Japan - identified as key states with the potential to challenge US dominance - provide evidence to support the assessment of international change. The author concludes by exploring the implications of September 11th for the analysis developed. This important volume argues that the end of the Cold War was a major historical turning point in the development of world politics with fundamental implications for the basic way in which the dynamics of the international system are conceptualised.

This book explores theoretical accounts of the evolution of cooperation in international political-economic relations, focussing on the dominant approach of 'international regimes' (principles, norms, rules and decision-making procedures around which actors expectations converge). The author exposes serious weaknesses in mainstream "neoliberal" applications of the regime concept and suggests that use of the concept precludes examination of political considerations and structural characteristics, that might better account for cooperative dynamics in the modern era and their potential trajectory in the Post-cold War World.

This new study questions whether peacekeeping fundamentally changed between the Cold War and Post-Cold War periods. Focusing on contrasting case studies of the Congo, Cyprus, Somalia and Angola, as well as more recent operations in Sierra Leone and East Timor, it probes new evidence with clarity and rigour. The authors conclude that most peacekeeping operations - whether in the Cold War or Post-Cold War periods - were flawed due to the failure of the UN member states to agree upon achievable objectives, the precise nature of the operations and provision of the necessary resources, and unrealistic post-1989 expectations that UN peacekeeping operations could be adapted to the changed international circumstances. The study concludes by looking at the Brahimi reforms, questions whether these are realistically achievable and looks at their impact on contemporary peace operations in Sierra Leone, East Timor and elsewhere.

. . . the book makes a significant contribution to the contemporary literature on the meaning and scope of security, as well as providing some useful insights into how traditional and emerging security issues are affecting individual states and regions. It will be of particular value to undergraduates and those who wish to gain an introduction to the complex world of international security. Alan Dupont, Australian Journal of International Affairs The book offers a distinctive critical analysis of security issues in the world s regions that remained in spite of the end of global bipolarity. . . many of [the essays] would be interesting and useful for scholars and students of international relations, and of the security issues of Europe, the ASEAN countries, and the Middle East. Alfia Abazova, Pacifica Review The end of the Cold War revolutionized East West relations, yet we still live in an ungoverned world of states which recognize no authority above themselves and whose conduct is minimally constrained by considerations of law and morality. Security Issues in the Post-Cold War World focuses on the changing international security agenda and the serious political instabilities many rooted in ethnic nationalisms and long-standing border disputes which have resurfaced with the end of the Cold War. After essays re-examining perennial security problems including collective security, nuclear proliferation and environmental security a series of regional studies focuses on the particular problems facing Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Drawing on a wide body of analysis and research on the international system, the contributors to this volume conclude that, despite the ending of the Cold War, security , whether defined narrowly or widely, is a scarce commodity.

Italy in the Post-Cold War Order: Adaptation, Bipartisanship, Visibility, edited by Maurizio Carbone, explains the evolution of Italy's foreign relations since the end of the Cold War. By integrating international and domestic factors, this collection shows how the transition from a bipolar into a unipolar/multipolar world order and the changes in its domestic political context has provided Italy with new opportunities, such as pursuing its commercial and political interests more autonomously, as well as new responsibilities, such as actively contributing to solving international crises and addressing new global threats.

With the end of the Cold War, the search for a new international and economic order has begun. In this comprehensive account, Sylvia Ostry provides a critical analysis of an international trade system in the throes of rapid and far-reaching change. With keen historical awareness, Ostry examines the role of key economic power brokers, particularly the United States, in the reconstruction and reconfiguration of an international economy after World War II. She argues that U.S. policy efforts were so successful that they led to an unprecedented renewal of economic growth, living standards, and education levels in postwar Europe and Japan. Ironically, those same policy successes unintentionally fostered the relative decline of U.S. dominance on the world trade scene as the reduction of trade and investment barriers prompted friction and conflict between different kinds of capitalist systems. Identifying the historical and legal issues key to postwar trade policy, Ostry has commandingly charted our economic course through the last half of this century and, perhaps, into the next. "Sylvia Ostry knows this subject as few others do, both as a scholar of international trade issues and a major player in the ongoing negotiations that have created the rules of the trade game. The Post-Cold War Trading System is a fine summary of where we've been and where we ought to be going."—Peter Passell, economic scene columnist for The New York Times

Post Cold War international relations have undeniably been a litmus test for the bilateral relations between India and Russia. With the emergence of a new international system, the foreign policies of both countries vacillated to explore new avenues of partnerships with other international players, an opportunity that otherwise proved effective to a large extent. National priorities and the geo-political architecture remodelled by the US, thus, compelled New Delhi and Moscow to pursue a foreign policy that moved away from serving the interests of each other. While defining the trends in the bilateral relations between the two countries, the strategic community has questioned whether the relationship can remain as special and strategic as it had been in the past. Are both countries still as relevant to one another as they once were? As the constant debate revolves around these questions, the two entities have, however, indicated a certain level of distinguishing characteristics in order to address the complexities and challenges in the partnership and have acknowledged that their relationship is not only special but also indispensable. What has also continued to remain undamaged and an integral part of the bilateral relations is mutual trust, understanding and concern, thus, resulting in maturity and pragmatism, irrespective of the uncertainties that the two countries face. It is in this context, that the new stage in the bilateral relations between the two countries requires a thorough assessment. It stands to reason that with the developments that are taking place in the current international milieu, there is a need for India and Russia to reemphasise their strong strategic partnership, goodwill and diplomatic trust that have stood the test of time. This book undertakes a serious assessment of the strategic partnership in the contemporary international set up. The seven chapters of the book attempt to address the myriad challenges through detailed analyses and evaluation of the partnership between India and Russia in various spheres, including the political, defence, economic, nuclear, energy, science and technology, security, and strategic engagement.

This text presents two theoretical frameworks for understanding the post-Cold War international systematic transition, and Indo-US relational patterns. The frameworks explain the casual determinants of the current international systematic transition and foreign policy in a comparative perspective. It aims to provide tools not only to gauge the present transition but also to develop warning systems to decipher symptoms of any future international systematic transition of foreign policy behaviour.

Stanley Hoffmann has remarked that 'It wasn't I who chose to study world politics. World politics forced themselves upon me.' Long one of the field's most distinguished thinkers, Hoffmann brings together in this volume his recent work on international politics. These essays offer incisive reflections upon the reemergence of nationalism and ethnic conflicts in Europe, the redefined role of military intervention, and other uncertainties brought on by the demise of the Cold War. Hoffmann weighs the influence of such disparate figures as John Rawls, Hedley Bull, and George Schultz. Woven throughout are his clear-eyed assessments of contending approaches to the study of international relations.

In this thoroughly revised and updated edition of "China and the World, " the contributors focus on the developments of the post-Tiananmen years, addressing the issues raised by China's expanding and increasingly complex relationships with a rapidly changing global environment. Combining a broad theoretical framework with specific case studies, the contributors assess the relative influences of domestic and foreign factors in shaping policy goals. They also examine the changes and continuities that have characterized Chinese foreign relations over the years, considering especially the discrepancies between rhetoric and reality, policy pronouncements and policy performance, and intent and outcome.
