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.

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.

This title was first published in 2000: This text describes, analyzes and projects the implications of regionalism on contemporary international relations. Regional policy positions are examined in order to increase our understanding of how the direct impact patterns of relations at a regional level of analysis are having in the shifting balance of international power. The book clarifies what types of regional dynamics are manifesting themselves in different parts of the world, and consists of both theoretical and empirical assessments (similar to those developed in the author's previous book on regionalism) that ensures that the comparative analysis conducted is a comprehensive and coherent one.

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

The end of the Cold War led to a dramatic and fundamental change in the foreign policy of the United States. In Mission Failure, Michael Mandelbaum, one of America's leading foreign-policy thinkers, provides an original, provocative, and definitive account of the ambitious but deeply flawed post-Cold War efforts to promote American values and American institutions throughout the world. In the decades before the Cold War ended the United States, like virtually every other country throughout history, used its military power to defend against threats to important American international interests or to the American homeland itself. When the Cold War concluded, however, it embarked on military interventions in places where American interests were not at stake. Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia and Kosovo had no strategic or economic importance for the United States, which intervened in all of them for purely humanitarian reasons. Each such intervention led to efforts to transform the local political and economic systems. The invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, launched in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, turned into similar missions of transformation. None of them achieved its aims. Mission Failure describes and explains how such missions came to be central to America's post-Cold War foreign policy, even in relations with China and Russia in the early 1990s and in American diplomacy in the Middle East, and how they all failed. Mandelbaum shows how American efforts to bring peace, national unity, democracy, and free-market economies to poor, disorderly countries ran afoul of ethnic and sectarian loyalties and hatreds and foundered as well on the absence of the historical experiences and political habits, skills, and values that Western institutions require. The history of American foreign policy in the years after the fall of the Berlin Wall is, he writes, "the story of good, sometimes noble, and thoroughly American intentions coming up against the deeply embedded, often harsh, and profoundly un-American realities of places far from the United States. In this encounter the realities prevailed."

. . . 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.

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.
