'Alexander Astrov is a remarkable scholar who has command of two very different literatures - contemporary International Relations theory in all its variants, positivist and non-positivist, and the aesthetically-oriented political philosophy and theories of history of figures such as Collingwood and Oakeshott. In On World Politics he manages to combine these two literatures to create a fascinating study of what International Relations theory could have been and should still be. This is a fascinating and deeply rewarding book, highly recommended to political theorists of all persuasions.' - Chris Brown, Professor of International Relations, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK
