Power and Interdependence Reviews
In all fairness, this was not a horrible book. Rather, my review is based on how much I "enjoyed" it, which was not very much. From the perspective of a student of Political Science or International Relations, this book was useful in understanding the theory of complex interdependence, which serves as the opposite of the traditional Realist framework. After defining complex interdependence and outlining the main characteristics, the authors then apply their theory to four different examples. In the first half, the authors address ocean issues and international monetary issues. In the second half, they address the US-Canada relationship and the US-Australia relationship.Since this book was published back in 1977, there have been two additional chapters tacked on in recent editions. Chapter nine looks at the information age and chapter ten examines globalism. Overall, while I found this book about as interesting as most textbooks (in other words, I would not be picking this up as a pleasure read), it was well written and researched. The points were clear and thoroughly formulated.
Keohane and Nye set up what becomes the dominant school of thought in the neoliberal camp of IR thinking: neoliberal institutionalism.
Keohane demuestra por qué en las relaciones internacionales es el fundador del institucionalismo neoliberal. Desde una crítica impone la interdependencia compleja dejando de lado el realismo y desencadena las metas de los estados, analiza los modelos económicos (impuestos y no impuestos) pero su crítica más compleja es al capitalismo moderno que ha permitido el desarrollo donde le conviene al una super estructura hegemónica. La cooperación internacional no es la resolución a la interdependencia luego de caracterizar a ésta en distintos escenarios alejada del determinismo económico.
This is a core text for International Relations. It dates from the 70's but has been updated with a couple of new chapters. It is a core liberal institutionalism text--the idea that the system of states is characterized by complex interdependence and that institutions are the key to peace. If you want to understand the foreign policy of the Clinton administration, you will find it here. Ditto the ideology of "Davos-man".
My impression: Swung for the fences and hit a ground-rule double. Their questions are, "What are the major features of world politics when interdependence, particularly economic interdependence, is extensive? And How and why do international regimes exist?
The best book in International Relations.
Keohane and Nye have the gift of writing about very interesting subjects in a highly boring fashion. That alone deserves 3 stars.
