Description

Book (re)launch: The Reason of States
with an introductory talk by Prof James Mayall on the "Ambiguous Legacy of Liberal Empire"
chaired by Prof Mervyn Frost
Wednesday 24 February 2016
5-7pm
War Studies Meeting Room (K6.07)
Department of War Studies, King's College London

In 1974, before there was any such thing as 'the English School', Michael
Donelan convened the International Political Theory seminar, held Fridays
at the London School of Economics. Over the next ten years, 'Interpol'
issued three volumes, on the *Reason*, the *Community* and the *Condition
of States*. *The Reason of States*, first published in 1978, was the
immediate occasion for Roy Jones' seminars at Leicester and Keele and the
famous 1981 article, which linked Manning, Wight and Donelan and baptised
their collective efforts the 'English School'. It was in these volumes
that Chris Hill, Mervyn Frost, James Mayall, Cornelia Navari and Hidemi
Suganami made their first appearance as international political theorists;
that John Vincent produced his famous 'Realpolitik', Barrie Paskins his
'Community of Terror?' and Philip Windsor his 'The State and War'.
Routledge has undertaken a reissue of the volumes, demonstrating the
trajectory of its development from the last meetings of the British
Committee on the Theory of International Politics to Barry Buzan's 1999
relaunch of the 'ES'.
This event is organised by the Research Centre in International Relations, King's College London.
