The Right that failed ? The ambiguities of conservative thought and the dilemmas of conservative practice in international affairs
Political theory and International Relations have become increasingly interpenetrated over the last few years.

It also suggests that a convergence of contemporary political and economic factors, together with a particular intellectual fashion, run the risk of promoting an unnecessarily and inappropriately narrow international political theory, and closes by suggesting how this might be avoided.
