From International Relations to World Civilizations : The Contributions of Robert W. Cox (Hardcover)
about this item
This volume explores the work of Robert W. Cox across International Relations, International Political Economy, and International Historical Sociology. Robert W. Cox has been a key figure in so-called critical approaches to world politics, contributing to the inter-paradigm debate in IR, pioneering the Gramscian approach to IPE, developing key insights into international institutions, and the changing nature of capitalism and the state. His more recent work on intercivilisational encounters and intersubjectivity has been no less influential. This comprehensive collection provides an entry-point into Cox’s work across these themes of history, theory, political economy, and civilizations, offering a way for researchers and students to engage with Robert W. Cox’s rich legacy and deploy the many insights of his thought into contemporary scholarship.
This book will be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as academics working within world politics. It was originally published as a special issue of the journal Globalizations.
