Most influential IR scholars

December 24, 2005

Over at my blog, I’ve just published a followup to Bill’s post last month on the William and Mary survey about the field of IR.

After examining the list of the 25 most influential IR scholars in some detail, I’ve invited readers to answer these questions:

  • What are the most influential IR books and articles published in the past 15 years (since 1990)?
  • Who are the field’s most important thinkers under age 50?

    Feel free to put answers in comments, or to send me an email. I’ll try to compile some results in a few weeks. Mull it over.
