About this item

This book collects the best essays of Prof. Benny Miller in the fields of international and regional security.

The author's work focuses on explaining patterns of international conflict and cooperation and the sources of war and peace. He accounts for continuity and change in global and regional security by synthesizing levels of analysis (in particular the international system and domestic politics). The theoretical approach is to bridge the sharp and counterproductive divisions in the field of International Relations. The field of International Relations is distinctive not only because it addresses competition in the real world of international politics, but also because of the intense conflict in the academic world among its competing explanatory perspectives. This work synthesizes different levels of analysis, which allows the author to integrate some of these competing perspectives. The goal is to explain phenomena that were previously explained by a host of distinctive and unconnected theories in a single coherent overarching framework.

The volume introduces four major themes:

  1. Sources of Great Power Conflict and Cooperation;
  2. International Effects on Regional Conflicts;
  3. Between War and Peace: Competing Sources of Regional War and Peace;
  4. Key Issues in the Security Field: Grand Strategy, Intervention and the Concept of Security;

By addressing each of these themes, this volume advances some major contributions to the study of international and regional security.

This book will be of much interest to students of international security, regional security, Middle Eastern politics, foreign policy and IR.
