The Ways Of Power
The Ways Of Power
By George Liska
Basil Blackwell, 1990, 551 pp

Reaching back to Thucydides, and delving into all the social sciences, this is a weighty volume-in pages and in propositions and ideas. The culmination of a life's work by this distinguished scholar, it is hard work to absorb it all. But reading it will be rewarding to those who seek a pattern in, and a deeper understanding of, the fundamentals of international politics.
