Challenging the received notions of International Relations theory about perhaps its most central tradition--Realism--Molloy demonstrates how a belief in a mode of theorization has distorted Realism, forcing the theory of power politics in International Relations into a paradigmatic straitjacket that is simply inadequate and inappropriate to the task of encompassing its diversity.
