He got his scholarly start in International Relations, and his new book is a major advance in the field. Public Choice Theory and the Illusion of Grand Strategy is not just a critique of the dogmatic “realist” school of international relations. It strongly argues that most countries’ foreign policies are simply incoherent because (a) each interest group (military, defense contractors, human rights groups, bureaucrats, foreign allies) focuses on its own narrow set of issues, and (b) politicians who adjudicate conflicts between these interest groups myopically focus on the next election.
