Bill Martin is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University.
This book provides an in-depth critical study of this genre of theorizing that he names ‘Emancipatory International Relations’. Spegele develops a framework to help the reader understand both the differences and commonalities in modernist and postmodernist emancipatory thinking in International Relations. He critically analyzes modernist theories, discourses, narratives and postmodernist theory and practice, feminist emancipatory discourses and postmodernist international discourse and concludes by examining the coherence, viability and plausibility of emancipatory discourses in international relations whether modernist or postmodernist.
This challenging and innovative volume will be of interest to students and researchers of international relations.
