Editorial Reviews

Review


"All in all, the book is an impressive achievement. In particular, Boucher's nuanced assessment of positions, the scope of his study and his sympathetic treatment of the British Idealists deserve mention."--Political Studies Review


"David Boucher has written a splendid book. It is to be praised for its breadth as well as for its insight...This is an important book which advances an important argument that deserves serious attention."--nternational Affairs


"David Boucher's The Limits of Ethics in International Relations is the result of eleven years hard work. It shows a degree of ambition that is unfortunately rare in the current REF-driven environment, in terms of the period that it covers (from the Ancient Greeks to the present), the length of the book and the level of scholarship. The result is a deeply impressive achievement, containing a wealth of original and nuanced interpretation, especially in the chapters on modern political thought. The Limits of Ethics in International Relations is a remarkable book that develops an ambitious, intelligent, well-informed and original argument on a topic of fundamental contemporary importance."--Kantian Review
