In Chapter 7, we evaluate the trajectory of neoclassical realist research. We begin by engaging other approaches to international relations and foreign policy that utilize domestic political variables or seek to reach across paradigmatic lines or levels-of-analysis and explain how our research program differs from them. We then address a number of lines of criticism that have been leveled against our approach over the past few years and explain either why they miss the mark, or how we have responded to them. We conclude with a discussion of our vision for the future of Type III neoclassical realist research and particularly promising avenues of inquiry.
