About this book

This book is the first volume in a trilogy that traces the development of the academic subject of International Relations, or what was often referred to in the interwar years as International Studies. This first volume takes on the origins of International Relations, beginning with the League of Nations and the International Studies Conference in Berlin in 1928 and tracing its development through the Paris Peace Conference, the quest for cooperation in the Pacific, the Institute of Pacific Relations and lessons from Copenhagen, Shanghai and Manchuria. This project is an impressive and exhaustive consideration of the evolution of IR and is aptly published in celebration of the discipline's centenary.

Reviews

“This book carries the history of IR a long step forward. The fruit of a very ambitious project, it will be an important source of future scholarship and a standard reference for coming disciplinary historians.” (Torbjørn L.  Knutsen, Professor, NTNU, Norway)

“This is long overdue learned critical discussion of the origins of the discipline of international relations, particularly under the League of Nations. Meticulously researched, clear and informative, it will certainly become one of pillars of the emerging critical voices on the origins and direction of the discipline.” (Ephraim Nimni, Visiting Fellow, Queen’s University Belfast, UK, and author of Democratic Representation in Plurinational States)
