CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Critical Practices in International Theory brings together for the first time
the essays of the leading IR theorist, James Der Derian. The essays cover a
variety of issues central to Der Derian's work including diplomacy, alienation,
terrorism, intelligence, national security, new forms of warfare, the role of
information technology in international relations, poststructuralist theory,
and the military-entertainment-media matrix.
The book includes a framing introduction written for this volume in which Der
Derian provides historical and theoretical context for a diverse body of work.
Discussing his own influences and reflecting upon the development of
international theory, he advocates a critical pluralist approach to the most
pressing problems of world politics.
Written in the eloquent style that marks out Der Derian as one of the most
provocative and innovative thinkers in international relations, this collection
is essential reading for scholars and students interested in the past, present
and future of international relations.
James Der Derian is a Watson Institute research professor of international
studies at Brown University, where he directs the Global Security Program and
the Global Media Project. He is the author of many articles and books,
including the highly acclaimed Virtuous War (2001, 2009).
