Public Intellectuals and International Affairs

ABOUT THE BOOK The new interest in ideas behind foreign policy and in different constructions of the international has neglected to consider the varied sources of such new ideas. Generally attributed to 'policy intellectuals' much of the radical new direction in foreign policy thinking that marked the 20th century came in fact from public intellectuals, increasingly recognised as a critical source of new thinking in liberal political orders. Building on the new research in public intellectuals and their contribution to public debate and policy evolution, this book provides a comprehensive treatment of the thought of the major public intellectuals who made critical contributions to the thought behind and the practice of foreign policy and international relations during the 20th century. The result is a fresh look at some familiar figures, new studies of some less recognised personalities, and new evaluations of some contested thinkers.
