The central aim of reasoning is to construct a logical and persuasive argument that carefully organizes and supports its conclusions — often around a central concept or scheme of argumentation. To the complex problem of understanding the ways in which the post-war nations were jostling for power, Morgenthau brought a comprehensive schema:

Athena Leoussi. Jan 11, Ricardo rated it it was amazing. A masterpiece!! This book must be read by all people interested in foreign affairs.

Even though the last publication of this book was in the 70's, it applies perfectly to today's international relations. Apr 12, Andrew Hard rated it really liked it.

An interesting explanation of the Realist school of thought in international relations. The text has a classical style, and many of the ideas are frequently reiterated.

As someone who struggles to reconcile realist and idealist political tendencies, this book helped me to clarify some of my own reasoning. Read this if you like to understand the historical development of theories. For something along the same lines that is more contemporary, I would suggest the Tragedy of Great Power Politics.

Great primer for IR theory. Oct 31, Claire rated it liked it. Morgenthau is as pretentious verbose as he is intelligent which makes for a difficult read. But classifying Morgenthau as a pure classical Realist is to misread his greatest work, Politics Among Nations.

His starting point is how human nature leads to the pursuit for power and how anarchy allows for conflicts among nations. Going into great lengths to analyse the sociological foundations of individuals within states and the states within the state system, his conclusion is that what works in one sphere If Kenneth Waltz is the Diego Maradona of Realism, then Hans Morgenthau is its Pele.

Going into great lengths to analyse the sociological foundations of individuals within states and the states within the state system, his conclusion is that what works in one sphere can not function in another. Precisely this obsession with the sociological elements of societies takes him away from a realist objectivity. For example, Morgenthau admits that the policy of prestige that nations pursue is the result of beliefs and not objective reality p.

This subjectivity is closer to a constructed social reality rather than a rigid Realist approach. One the one hand he acknowledges its usefulness but on the other hand he is very critical of some of its features. On another note, his cynicism about moral values as a pretext of ideological motivations does not stop him from admitting that morality has a place in international politics p. He attributes the moral and material decline of the Western countries to ethical questions of a postcolonial modern world p.

Morgenthau is also a vehement critic of a world public opinion, or more accurately he does not recognise one. But in the era of globalisation, of internet and of social media, a world public opinion can have voice that transcends national borders. Similarly, his approach to the solution of how to understand and deal with nuclear weapons is a post-modern outlook.

He stresses the importance of language, truth, and the politics of nuclear weapons. The second part of his book is devoted to ways of overcoming war and bringing a permanent peace.

His proposal is a world state as the only vehicle that can realise a permanent peace. But because a world state to be formed requires a world society, he rejects the notion that one day we will have a world state because of a lack of a world society.

The author, who was german, was very And it was kind of funny when you could literally read how off hinged and crazed he was when he started going off about nuclear war and how we were all going to die from bombs. Each and every topic is covered in the book. The struggle for Power and Peace. In fact, I first came in to contact with the school of Realism by reading Prof. Unless the very last man in this world is convinced to give up his pursuit of political power through violent means, the words of realists — from Kautilya to Morgenthau and Waltz are going to be relevant in managing the international affairs.

The abstract conceptions which are at times too simplistic in their prescriptions just cannot solve the problem — prevention of war. It is no surprise that in the aftermath of second world war practitioners of foreign policy and diplomats used this book as a ready reckoner for issues that needed some clear direction. And the realistic school of thought has only grown in strength ever since. Some of Prof. Since power is not equally distributed, the one with power than the other is tempted to go to war, as he is convinced that his power is considerably more than his opponent.

It is a vicious cycle. The belligerent thinks that because he has some level of power he cannot just sit quite, if he is not going to attack the other, the other will attack him for the same objective Political Power.

Extrapolating this state of nature to the context of Nation state, we realize that states or empires cannot be at war with all, all the time. Hence, they seek to negotiate with each other to what degree or level, power can be possessed by each other at a given point of time with certain factors remaining constant.

The Church with the help of political power wants to convert every human being in to Christianity through any means and the proponents of Islam want to turn the world in to a caliphate that goes with either communists or capitalists for example, the possibility of violence is imminent hence the possibility of war. So, the conflict is inevitable. If power is a limited source, and at a given time a particular international setup Status Quo favors US and not Russia, then Russia would seek to overthrow the status quo for the sake of multiplying its power, and US would defend the status quo with all the means possible as the status quo favors it.

To change the status quo means war, and war as a means involves costs on both sides, hence the two warring groups negotiate the terms to redistribute the power. Hence, they maintain the equilibrium.

If state A has 10 missiles and state B has 15, then both may negotiate on the number of missiles both are allowed to have at a given time and agree that either A increase the count to 15 or B reduce it to 10 is balance of power. Now both know that they are equals once balance is achieved , one cannot attack the other without destroying each other completely.

Balance is attained, so the reduction of the possibilities of war. But in the international scene it is not so simple, the players are many and the factors that impact these calculations are dynamic.

To understand Balance of Power among nations one should know what is National Power? Especially on this Prof. Morgenthau has done a yeoman service by theorizing Comprehensive National Power and the elements that constitute it. I recommend all to at least read that chapter alone if not the whole book. With the resurgence of eastern powers like China and India, the conflict between the defenders of status quo and the players who seek change is only going to get more severe.

And the prescriptions of Prof. Morgenthau will only help us traverse through the hard times that lie ahead. Jan 16, SpaceBear rated it it was amazing Shelves: Politics Among Nations lays out Morgenthau's vision of realism as based on human nature, and the manner in which a "will to power" is hard-wired into both people and states. He adopts a positivist approach, asserting that international politics is governed by objective laws.

He argues that although here are obvious moral implications to international politics, neither analysts nor practitioners should allow themselves to be guided solely by abstract moral goals, but instead, must address power a Politics Among Nations lays out Morgenthau's vision of realism as based on human nature, and the manner in which a "will to power" is hard-wired into both people and states.

He argues that although here are obvious moral implications to international politics, neither analysts nor practitioners should allow themselves to be guided solely by abstract moral goals, but instead, must address power as it exists and is exercised. He briefly analyses morality, international law, international justice, and world public opinion, but argues that even when they exist, their impact is secondary to the interests of great powers and the balance between them.

He argues that such a system will inevitably have conflict within it, and that the overall goal of international politics should be to create a system whereby this conflict is not permitted to take place. He discusses three potential approaches to this, peace through limitation disarmament, security agreements, judicial settlements but asserts that they will not be able to remove the underlying insecurity felt by states.

Second is peace through transformation into a world state , but he asserts that a prerequisite of a world state is an international community with agreement on the meaning of justice. The only way to build this is through the third means, peace through accommodation. In this, he argues that diplomacy must be used to slowly build an international society through deft political calculations of power. The last section reads like a realists attempt at optimism, or a how-to guide t becoming a liberal over an extended period.

The discussions on international society set the stage for the English School. Jan 08, Michael Holm rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a very persuasive argument against the idea that a world government is possible in our current world. Morgenthau explains the ramifications of the current nuclear arsenals and offers very faint hope for a nuclear-free world war in the future.

In today's geopolitical climate, preserving the status quo is everyone's ambition and almost every conflict in the world has the potential of engaging additional countries, including the major powers. The discussion of power exerted for self-interes This is a very persuasive argument against the idea that a world government is possible in our current world. The discussion of power exerted for self-interest recalls Machiavelli's works and rings true in the frequently cited examples in history.

He paints a very bleak picture about the prospects of nuclear warfare. It is paramount to find a way to avoid any nuclear warfare. But he realistically does not see any solution except continued intelligent and masterful diplomacy. He argues that a world court would always uphold the status quo although many conflicts challenge the status quo. Major powers will never willingly surrender any privilege or advantage.

A world government is not possible yet because there are too many cultural differences which make a moral consensus impossible. The moral consensus is essential for the government to be effective. The people must value order over selfishness. It is in their self-interest to have order. This seems to be an academic textbook in political science. It is very thorough and has been through many editions. A very worth-while read for world citizens. An old professor of mine, W.

Fox, once told my class that Morgenthau was so annoyed by the constant criticisms of his work, which nonetheless became the standard text used by almost every college professor in America, that when he appeared at a conference he would simply say, "Okay. You know what I think. Let's have the complaints. May 07, RJ marked it as to-read. Dec 30, Judy rated it really liked it. Hans J. Morganthau has written a classic in the field of international relations and established the school of realism in that study.

Politics Among Nations

Morganthau concludes that power is at the basis of international relations, just as at the basis of individual human relationships. A must read for anyone interested in the basic theory of international dealings among states.

Note to self: Jun 23, Asim Virk rated it really liked it.
