About the Author

Raymond Taras is Professor of Political Science at Tulane University.


'An original and insightful approach to the understanding of foreign policy. Applying cultural, historical and psychological perspectives grounded in classical and modern scholarship, Raymond Taras shows how suspicions, hatreds and fears of real and imagined enemies are major factors in foreign policies. In so doing, he provides a needed corrective to the assumptions of rational decision making.' - William Safran, Professor Emeritus of Political Science, University of Colorado at Boulder
