I run a small international-relations reading group at Georgetown University, and thought some of our readers might be interested in the list of books we’re tackling this semester.
- Michael Horowitz, The Diffusion of Military Power: Causes and Consequences for International Politics (Princeton, 2010); 26 January.
- Patrick Thaddeus Jackson, The Conduct of Inquiry in International Relations: Philosophy of Science and Its Implications for the Study of World Politics (Routledge, 2010); 23 February.
- Donald A. McKenzie, An Engine, Not a Camera: How Financial Models Shape Markets (MIT Press, 2008); 30 March.
- Beth Simmons, Mobilizing for Human Rights: International Law in Domestic Politics (Cambridge University Press, 2009); 30 April.
As should be obvious, we strive for methodologically and substantively diverse readings.
