Further Details
Abstract Any effort to examine and analyze the current status and the future development of International Politics is subject to the sense of vanity caused by the relentless course of history. The international scene is always full of changes, sometimes at a dramatic rate and degree, which differentiate to the point of complete transformation the existing state of affairs, either with regard to the key players of system, or with regard to the parameters of the international system itself. The constant struggle of the various states, to improve their position in the international scene, in order to increase their power and influence in any possible sector, is the catalyst for this situation. Therefore, the effort made by the Editor Nikolaos Tzifakis, to collect and present, in a systematic and comprehensive manner, the views of several well-known scholars and academics in the field of International Relations is a very bold initiative. However, Nikolaos Tzifakis remains true to his reputation as a very careful and effective academic, who can put forward a collection of interesting analyses and arguments, ordered in a simple – for the average reader – and yet well-structured complex of views that may stand against any academic critical inspection.
