Long DescriptionDoes a hard-headed realist approach to international politicsnecessarily involve scepticism towards progressive foreign policyinitiatives and global reform?  Should proponents of realismalways be seen as morally complacent and politicallycombative?  In this major reconsideration of the main figuresof international political theory, Bill Scheuerman challengesconventional wisdom to reveal a neglected tradition of progressiverealism with much to contribute to contemporary debates aboutinternational policy-making and world government.  Far from seeing international reform as well-meaning butpotentially irresponsible idealism, progressive realists like E.H.Carr, John Herz, Hans J. Morgenthau, and Reinhold Niebuhr developedforward-looking ideas which offer an indispensable corrective tomany presently influential views about global politics. Progressive realism, Scheuerman argues, offers a compelling andprovocative vision of radical global change which - when properlyinterpreted, can help buttress current efforts to address the mostpressing international issues. After recovering key subterranean strands in mid-twentiethcentury realism, Scheuerman underscores their relevance tocontemporary international theory.  Criticizing more recentrealists for abandoning their tradition's best insights, he alsodemonstrates that reform-minded international theories - includingversions of cosmopolitanism, constructivism, the English School,liberalism, and republicanism - could all benefit from takingProgressive Realism seriously.  A major contribution both to the history of internationalrelations and contemporary debates in international theory, TheRealist Case for Global Reform concludes by considering howprogressive realism informs the foreign policies of US PresidentBarack Obama.
