CONFRONTING DEVIANT BEHAVIOR IN WORLD POLITICS
Rogue states pursue weapons of mass destruction, support terrorism, violate human rights, engage in acts of territorial aggression, and pose a threat to the international community. Recent debates and policy shifts regarding Iraq, North Korea, Syria, Iran, and Afghanistan reflect the uneven attempts to contend with regimes that pursue deviant behavior. In this timely new work, Miroslav Nincic illuminates the complex issues and policy choices surrounding clashes between international society and states that challenge the majority’s espoused interests and values. As conventional approaches to international relations lose their relevance in a changing world, Nincic’s work provides new and necessary frameworks and perspectives.
