Product Overview

In this engaging book, eminent scholar George Liska demonstrates the intricate and complex relationship between world politics and world history, and he proposes a systematic, but fundamentally new method of thinking about world politics. Building on ideas developed in his earlier works, particularly the legacy of the Cold War, Liska expands his "geopolitical" approach into a "geohistorical" one. Rejecting the idea that periods and events should be viewed as static, fixed structures, Liska's analysis reveals the cyclical nature of world history and develops a new kind of realism that encompasses the problems of expansion and evolution. This innovative book by a world renowned political thinker has far reaching implications that will be valuable to all students and scholars of international relations, world history, and the philosophy of history.
