Hello fellow dopers,
I am currently starting to work on a Phd regarding International Relations.
I am quite interested in the aspect of regionalism within this field of study.
I found an interesting book called Regions and Powers by Barry Buzan which deals with the world in terms of what is termed “Regional Security Complexes” (RSC’s)
I was wondering if anybody could recommend me a book that fulfills the following 3 criteria:
A book that deals with the world in terms of regions (which includes practially all the world) and regional partnerships
A book that could be considered a classic or very important in international relations theory regarding this topic of regionalism
Lastly, I would like the book to be in-depth and long (if posible), and by long I mean something over 400+ pages in length.
I’ve looked in amazon and have found not much that fit all these criteria, except for Regions and pPowers.
One last detail, I would also accept a series of books that deals with various regions if a single volumen is not available.
If anyone could provide me with some links or ideas about such books, it would be very much appreciated.
