Norrin M. Ripsman, Jeffrey W. Taliaferro, and Steven E. Lobell

  • First attempt to build a neoclassical realist theory of international politics, rather than of foreign policy or anomalies for structural realism
  • Includes a detailed chapter on methodology for neoclassical realists
  • Surveys the extant literature on neoclassical realism, including works dealing with international security and international political economy
  • Explicates the areas of potential overlap and the areas of sharp disagreement between neoclassical realism and other leading schools of international relations theories
