Gilbert Murray Reassessed

Peter Wilson

Oxford University Press

This chapter takes a retrospective look at the international political thought of Gilbert Murray, ninety years after his first substantial work on the subject was published (1915), and nearly sixty years after his last (1948). The disciplinary tradition of International Relations (IR) is used to draw up a balance sheet of achievement and failure. It is shown that while Murray played an important role in the establishment of IR, and while he worked closely with several early IR professors, he was not an IR professor himself, and certainly no theorist in today's sense.
