Summary "The book offers a critical examination of European approaches to International Relations theory, suggesting practical ways of challenging mainstream thought. Jorg Friedrichs presents a detailed sociological analysis of knowledge production in existing European IR communities, namely France, Italy and Scandinavia. He also discusses a selection of European schools and approaches." "The book introduces European approaches to IR theory and bears witness of their potential importance. At the same time, it sets an agenda for the progressive development of a 'Eurodiscipline' of IR studies. It will be of interest to scholars worldwide."--BOOK JACKET
