Richard Ned Lebow is the author of 40 scholarly books and over 300 articles and book chapters on international relations, political theory, political psychology, history, classics, and philosophy of science. He is a fellow of the British Academy.


'Ethical foreign policy can be good foreign policy, and in this comprehensive and provocative study full of historical and cross-national cases, Lebow shows how tragedy can be the corrective that ensures both.' Brent J. Steele, Professor, Political Science Department, The University of Utah
'The study of ethics in International Relations is becoming ever more important and central to the discipline. Richard Ned Lebow makes a characteristically insightful and original contribution to this field in Ethics and International Relations: A Tragic Perspective. Building on his earlier work The Tragic Vision of Politics, Lebow broadens the scope of his inquiry by relating his tragic understanding of ethics to contemporary policy making. Lebow encourages the reader to rethink the relationship between politics and ethics, arguing that a tragic ethos serves to guide effective policy making and as a vital means to identify and correct policy that has gone astray.' Sean Molloy, Reader in International Relations, University of Kent
