This book provides an integrated framework for analysis of international politics by linking various approaches of study into a coherent whole.

The book provides historical comparisons (i.e., compares the breakdown of the bipolar Cold War System to similar trends that took place in Ancient Greece). There are extensive bibliographies, including non-U.S. sources, to provide a helpful tool to students writing essays. Material includes 5 different models of international politics and adds end of chapter "Questions for Discussion and Analysis".

Taming the sovereigns : institutional change in international politics by K. J Holsti( )

23 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many analysts claim that international politics has recently entered a new era, following the end of the Cold War and then the events of September 11th. In this book, Kalevi Holsti asks what we mean by 'change' in international politics. How do we identify it? How do we distinguish between significant and unimportant changes? Do we really live in a new era or do we see more continuity than transformation in the texture of international politics? Combining theoretical and empirical argument, Holsti investigates eight major international institutions including the state, sovereignty, territoriality, international law, diplomacy, trade and war. Having identified the types of change these institutions have undergone during the last three centuries, Holsti analyses the sources of those changes and speculates on their consequences. This is a major book, likely to have lasting influence in the study of international politics
Peace and war : armed conflicts and international order, 1648-1989 by K. J Holsti( Book )

32 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Professor Holsti approaches the study of the origins of war and the foundations of peace from a distinct perspective. He asks three interrelated questions. Which issues generate conflict? How have attitudes towards war changed? And, what attempts have been made historically to create international orders and institutions that can manage, control or prevent international conflicts? Starting with the peace treaties of Munster and Osnabruck of 1648, Kalevi Holsti examines 177 international wars. Through these, he identifies the variety of conflict-producing issues and how they, as well as the attitudes of policy makers to the use of force, have changed over the last 350 years. He demonstrates how the orders established by the great peacemaking efforts of 1648, 1713, 1815, 1919 and 1945 attempted to solve the issues of the past, yet few successfully anticipated those of the future. Indeed, some created the basis of fresh conflicts
The state, war, and the state of war by K. J Holsti( Book )

25 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"War has traditionally been studied as a problem deriving from the relations between states. Strategic doctrines, arms control agreements, and the foundations of international organizations such as the United Nations, are designed to prevent wars between states. Since 1945, however, the incidence of interstate war has actually been declining rapidly, while the incidence of internal wars has been increasing. The author argues that in order to understand this significant change in historical patterns, we should jettison many of the analytical devices derived from international relations studies and shift attention to the problems of "weak" states: those states unable to sustain domestic legitimacy and peace. This book surveys some of the foundations of state legitimacy and demonstrates why many weak states will be the locales of war in the future. Finally, the author asks what the United Nations can do about the problems of weak and failed states."--Jacket
