Chapters 10 and 11 offer a somewhat different approach to International Relations theory from the previous nine. The emphasis will remain on theory, on developing a conceptual understanding of the subject, but the context will no longer be quite so dependent on the development of the discourse itself as in the earlier chapters. From now on, the driving force will come from events in the world rather than academia; arguably, this has always been the case with IR theory, but here the relationship between theory and practice is much clearer. The agendas of Chapters 10 and 11 are set by international politics since the 1980s and especially in the twenty-first century, and will be readily recognizable by practitioners as well as scholars, and by informed members of the public as well as students of the social sciences.
