Turbulence In World Politics: A Theory Of Change And Continuity
Turbulence In World Politics: A Theory Of Change And Continuity
By James N. Rosenau
Princeton University Press, 1990, 479 pp.

Nothing less than the role of turbulence and change in world politics and man's behavior are suggestively analyzed in this broad-ranging volume by a highly regarded political scientist. Like many theoretical works today, it goes back to fundamentals and questions them rather than building on the work of others. This is an intelligent work, written for the academic community, and it should leave its mark there.
