Summary
"Martin Wright was one of the most profound and influential thinkers on international relations of his time, and his work is increasingly discussed, appraised, and drawn upon today." "His earlier volume of posthumously-published lectures - International Theory: The Three Traditions - is now regarded as a seminal text. That volume is here complemented and completed. In these four lectures, Wight takes the archetypal thinkers of his three traditions - Machiavelli, Grotius, and Kant - to whom he adds Mazzini, the father of all revolutionary nationalism (and so the prototype of Nehru, Nasser, and Mandela), and subjects their writings and careers to analysis and commentary."--BOOK JACKET
