About this Item

Real Realpolitik: A History
John Bew argues that real realpolitik is ripe for excavation and rediscovery as it undergoes a renaissance in the English-speaking world. Bew argues that the original concept of 'realpolitik' is still relevant to the challenges of the 21st century. Its use in the English language provides a window into the soul of Anglo-American political culture.
