Inquiry, Logic, and International Politics

Through the use of logic, simulation, and empirical data, Benjamin A. Most and Harvey Starr develop and demonstrate a nuanced and more appropriate conceptualization of explanation in international relations and foreign policy in Inquiry, Logic, and International Politics. They demonstrate that a concern with the logical underpinnings of research raises a series of theoretical, conceptual, and epistemological issues that must be addressed if theory and research design are to meet the challenges of cumulation in the study of international relations (or any area of social science). The authors argue for understanding the critical, yet subtle, interplay of the elements with a research triad composed of theory, logic, and method.

Reviews

"A major contribution to the introspective literature on international relations theory. The objective of these two mainstream practitioners of quantitative international politics (QIP) is to enhance the understanding of international relations by improving the ability of social scientists to explain international phenomena. Most and Starr have succeeded admirably."— Choice Reviews, A. L. Ross, Naval War College
"There are many useful ideas in this excellent volume that a short review cannot cover fully. I recommend it to all practitioners of international relations research. Moreover, Inquiry, Logic, and International Politics should be part of the required readings for all graduate seminars on international relations. This volume should serve well to train future generations of international relations scholars and to remind the current generation of the importance of sound logic of inquiry." —The Journal of Politics, Steve Chan, University of Colorado, Boulder
