Realism, World Politics, and the Legacy of the Bush Administration


Is Paul Wolfowitz for Real? | Foreign Policy

I couldn’t resist posting these replies to Paul Wolfowitz’s horrendously-naive article in the latest issue of Foreign Policy. Better words in defense of a Realist approach to world politics have rarely been uttered than by Stephen Walt; and Drezner’s, Rothkopf’s, and Clemons’ ideas are equally poignent. Of course, students from my World Politics & Government, and 20th Century History courses will find all of these articles familiar territory and fascinating; especially those of you in academia/working in government/etc. (plug-you know who you are).
