This book correlates the teachings of Aristotle with contemporary politics by presenting select lectures of Hans J. Morgenthau, one of the leading international relations theorists of his time.
A good case in point is Morgenthau's Politics Among Nations. Though the book clearly states sets out to create a 'rational theory' of international politics capable of reflecting the 'objective laws' of world affairs, the Morgenthau ...

This book is designed to familiarise students with leading International Relations (IR) theories and their explanation of political events, phenomena, and processes which cross the territorial boundaries of the state. Thus, students will be exposed to the interplay between power, interest, ideas, identity, and resistance, in explaining continuity and change in international relations. Developed to provide students with the analytical tools and intellectual frameworks needed to understand the behaviour of different international actors in contemporary global affairs. This textbook responds to the challenges of a dynamic job market by assisting students to gain both thorough theoretical knowledge and training them to apply this knowledge to real world problems. In short, this textbook delivers: A comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to the examination of national, regional and global trends in politics, economics and socio-cultural developments allowing students to understand: ¢ the practice and theory of contemporary international relations ¢ the politics, culture, history, and economies of different regions around the world ¢ the role played by international interactions, culture, and government in local, national, and global settings. Equipping students with the proficiency: ¢ to understand and interpret the dynamics, patterns, and issues of global affairs ¢ to know how to get more information about particular questions ¢ to evaluate that information independently and effectively. To these ends, the textbook provides a number of features that will appeal to students and avoids overwhelming students with chapters on topics which (in practice) are rarely on courses, while nonetheless providing a comprehensive overview of the field. Introduces students to the main debates, topics, and terms in the field and allows them to decide which they would like to focus on in their further studies.

Mostly Morgenthaus is the intimate portrait of an extraordinary American family, which included an ambassador, a cabinet member, prominent businessmen and a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian. Reaching back to the eighteenth century, Henry Morgenthau III tells the story of this Jewish family, tracing the careers of his great-grandfather, the dynamic but unstable Lazarus Morgenthau (1815-1897), who in 1866 transported his family to New York after making and losing a fortune in Mannheim, Germany; his grandfather, the determined Henry Sr. (1856-1946), who recouped the family fortune and retired from business in midlife to devote himself to public service as ambassador to Turkey and plenipotentiary throughout the Armenian crisis of 1913-15; and his father, the diffident Henry Jr. (1891-1967), who became one of the country’s most influential men and, as secretary of the Treasury under FDR, one of the first Jews to serve in the cabinet. From his privileged vantage point, the author describes the Bretton Woods Conference, the controversial Morgenthau Plan, the scandal surrounding Harry Dexter White, his parents’ remarkably close friendship with Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, his sister Joan’s spectacular White House coming-out party, the encounter his cousin — historian Barbara Tuchman — had with Roosevelt, and the career of his younger brother, Robert Morgenthau, US district attorney in New York. He also provides an inside picture of the remarkable German-Jewish families — the Strausses, Lehmans, Ochses, Guggenheims, Wertheims — who played important roles in American life. “Henry Morgenthau 3d has written a remarkable book — an admiring but still often critical account of an important American family by one of its members... The story of the Morgenthaus is classic immigrant history.” — Arthur Hertzberg, The New York Times “[A] fondly detailed, often humorous, intimate family memoir, covering the Horatio Alger-like rise of an immigrant family to affluence and influence in the New World... [with] a darker, more troubling subtext. As New York’s German Jews emerged from the cocoon of poverty, they struggled to camouflage any traces of ethnicity that might distinguish them from the predominantly Christian community...” — Stephen Birmingham, Washington Post “A fourth-generation Morgenthau pens a lively and engaging biography of his family of high achievers, overlaid with a fresh view of changing Jewish acculturation during the past two American centuries... From letters and family stories, the author assembles a gripping and tragic account of the 1915 Armenian massacre... Thirty years later, during WW II, the author’s father, Henry, Jr. — FDR’s secretary of the treasury — presented a scathing report to the President on the ‘Acquiescence of the Government to the Murder of the Jews’ with equal lack of effect. Personal history that opens to a larger cultural and political account of the 20th century: fluent and passionately humane.” — Kirkus Reviews “Storybook histories of old-line German-Jewish families in America resemble one another to a remarkable degree... Mostly Morgenthaus, the latest and one of the most interesting examples of this genre, dissents from the storybook version of events in numerous ways... this volume reminds us that American Jewish history is remarkably unpredictable, and surprises abound.” — Jonathan D. Sarna, Commentary Magazine “Sprinkled with backroom revelations of the New Deal, this dramatic family saga focuses on three patriarchs, each driven by a sense of destiny... This history of a resilient family includes closeups of FDR, Al Smith, Ike, Eleanor Roosevelt and the author’s brother, Manhattan district attorney Robert Morgenthau.” — Publishers Weekly “Insider family chronicles rarely offer the richness and luster with which the reader is rewarded in Mostly Morgenthaus... This personalized account is both moving and fascinating. As the only recent examination of the Morgenthaus’ impact on American history, as an intimate portrait of prominent immigrant society during America’s Gilded Age, and as a model for those tracing their cultural roots, this makes good history...” — Library Journal “With the Roosevelts and the Kennedys, the Morgenthaus are a family greatly and famously in the service of the Republic. This book, partly family history, partly personal memoir, adds in a charming way to the story.” — John Kenneth Galbraith “The Morgenthaus were one of those great German-Jewish families who broke through the snobbish anti-Semitism of the Wasp mainstream in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries to become a force in American public life. This is a charming, intimate portrayal of three fascinating generations in American history.” — Peter Grose “I have found Mostly Morgenthaus a marvelously engrossing and richly informative account of how a distinguished American family moved from Judaism to assimilation and back to Judaism once more. In his four-generation story, Henry Morgenthau III discusses his forebears with an admirable mix of affection and clear-sightedness. Not the least of the book’s attractions are the lively, first-hand vignettes it offers of New York’s German-Jewish patriciate and of FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt at work and play. Infinitely rewarding, meticulously wrought, Mostly Morgenthaus is a model of family history, a tour de force in a tricky and taxing genre.” — H. Stuart Hughes “A fascinating volume, I am gratified that Henry Morgenthau has made the time and the effort to chronicle one of the most interesting émigré families with a background in this country of nearly two centuries.” — Abram L. Sachar

NEW YORK TIMES EDITORS’ CHOICE • An “epic and intimate” (David M. Kennedy) portrait of four generations of the Morgenthau family, a dynasty of power brokers and public officials with an outsize—and previously unmapped—influence extending from daily life in New York City to the shaping of the American Century “Magisterial . . . a vivid retelling of critical domestic and world events over two centuries.”—Dr. Fiona Hill After coming to America from Germany in 1866, the Morgenthaus made history in international diplomacy, in domestic politics, and in America’s criminal justice system. With unprecedented, exclusive access to family archives, award-winning journalist and biographer Andrew Meier vividly chronicles how the Morgenthaus amassed a fortune in Manhattan real estate, advised presidents, advanced the New Deal, exposed the Armenian genocide, rescued victims of the Holocaust, waged war in the Mediterranean and Pacific, and, from a foundation of private wealth, built a dynasty of public service. In the words of former mayor Ed Koch, they were “the closest we’ve got to royalty in New York City.” Lazarus Morgenthau arrived in America dreaming of rebuilding the fortune he had lost in his homeland. He ultimately died destitute, but the family would rise again with the ascendance of Henry, who became a wealthy and powerful real estate baron. From there, the Morgenthaus went on to influence the most consequential presidency of the twentieth century, as Henry’s son Henry Jr. became FDR’s longest-serving aide, his Treasury secretary during the war, and his confidant of thirty years. Finally, there was Robert Morgenthau, a decorated World War II hero who would become the longest-tenured district attorney in the history of New York City. Known as the “DA for life,” he oversaw the most consequential and controversial prosecutions in New York of the last fifty years, from the war on the Mafia to the infamous Central Park Jogger case. The saga of the Morgenthaus has lain half hidden in the shadows for too long. At heart a family history, Morgenthau is also an American epic, as sprawling and surprising as the country itself.
