Professor Malici Co-Authors New Book on Foreign Policy and International Relations
GREENVILLE, S.C.— Furman University political science professor Akan Malici has co-authored a new book about foreign policy and international relations.
Rethinking Foreign Policy Analysis: States, Leaders, and the Microfoundations of Behavioral International Relations is co-written by Malici, Stephen G. Walker, emeritus professor of political science at Arizona State University, and Mark Schafer, political science professor at Louisiana State University. It is published by Routledge.
In Rethinking Foreign Policy Analysis, the authors present a definitive, social-psychological approach to integrating theories of foreign policy analysis and international relations. They address the agent-centered, micro-political study of decisions by leaders and the structure-oriented, macro-political study of state interactions as a complex adaptive system.
Malici joined the Furman faculty in 2005. He holds a master’s and Ph.D. from Arizona State University. His scholarly interest is in the area of foreign policy decision-making and peace and conflict studies.
Malici is author of When Leaders Learn and When They Don’t (SUNY Press, 2008) and The Search for a Common European Foreign and Security Policy (Palgrave Press, 2008). He is also co-author of U.S. Presidents and Foreign Policy Mistakes to be published this year by Stanford University Press.
