International Relations' Last Synthesis?

Decoupling Constructivist and Critical Approaches

J. Samuel Barkin and Laura Sjoberg

  • A refreshing approach that avoids the pitfalls of both the constructivist-critical theory synthesis and arguments about the end of IR
  • Uses rich examples to explore the theoretical landscape of the field of global politics
  • Employs an interdisciplinary approach to the nature of theory
  • Provides a potential path forward for grand theorizing in IR
