John H. Herz : realism and the fragility of the international order.

Stirk, P. M. R. (2005) 'John H. Herz : realism and the fragility of the international order.', Review of international studies., 31 (2). 285-306.


John H. Herz is a significant, but comparatively neglected, figure in the development of International Relations (IR) as a discipline. Although he contributed to the emergence of realism as the dominant approach to international relations in the United States, his thought is characterised by an insight into the fragility of the international order and the state which stands in marked contrast to the emphasis upon durability and persistence evident in recent surveys of a self-avowed American realism.
