A New Handbook of Political Science

David Sanders (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The neo‐liberal/realism trend in international relations grew from a frustration (specifically of Waltz) with the simplicity and reductionism of realism. Game theoretical rigour and analysis of competition between nation‐states developed the field, but Sanders questions how much more we understand as a result. An alternative is offered in ‘concessional realism’, whereby analysis is furthered by a simple and flexible set of propositions about nation‐state behaviour. The propositions of each approach are outlined.

Keywords:   game theory, international relations, nation‐states, neo‐liberalism, neo‐realism, Kenneth N. Waltz
