Challenging conventional views of Hans Kelsen and foreign-policy realism in International Relations theory!
This book is the first work to show this iconic legal philosopher’s significance as a progressive political realist. In a lively account of Kelsen’s life and political thinking, Robert Schuett introduces him as a political realist and brings his thought on human nature, the state and war into productive tension with today’s Schmittians and conventional views of foreign policy realism.
