Editorial Reviews


'This is a spirited yet remarkably humble defence of the heretical idea that the future of international relations as a vigorous academic discipline depends on the willingness of its representatives to take a radical 'aesthetic turn'. Bleiker's intellectual vision unfolds in exemplary lucid prose.' – Manfred B. Steger in Australian Book Review'Bleiker presents a coherent and sustained argument in support of the aesthetic insight in international politics. He demonstrates the book's usefulness most effectively when reflecting on the particular security challenges that were posed by the 9/11 attacks.' – N.A.J. Taylor in Global Change, Peace & Security'This book is not only accessible to readers outside academia, but it also a useful contribution to the methodological and theoretical study of social science in general and global politics in particular.' – Monica Ingber in In-Spire Journal of Law, Politics and Societies
--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
