UNSPECIFIED (1994) THE IDEA OF INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM - THEORY MEETS HISTORY. In: Conference of the Japan-Association-for-International-Relations, KITA KYUSHU, JAPAN, 1993. Published in: INTERNATIONAL POLITICAL SCIENCE REVIEW, 15 (3). pp. 231-255.Full text not available from this repository.
This article uses a long view of history to examine structural realist ideas about international system. It has three themes: (1) that insufficient thought has been given to defining the necessary and sufficient conditions for saying that an international system exists; (2) that such conceptions of international system as we do have are overwhelmingly biased by the structural characteristics of the European experience; and (3) that international relations theory and history need each other. History provides a wealth of significant challenges to prevailing orthodoxies in international relations theory, and structural realist theory can be used as an interesting approach to formulating grand history.
