Social Theory of International Politics
Drawing upon philosophy and social theory, Social Theory of International Politics develops a cultural theory of international politics which contrasts with the realist mainstream. Wendt argues that states can view each other as enemies, rivals or friends, characterising these roles as 'cultures of anarchy', which are shared ideas which help shape states' interests and capabilities. These cultures can change over time as ideas change. Wendt thus argues that the nature of international politics is not fixed, and that the international system is not condemned to conflict and war.
