Drezner boldly lurches into the breach and "stress tests" the ways that different approaches to world politics would explain policy responses to the living dead. He examines the most prominent international relations theories - including realism, liberalism, constructivism, neoconservatism, and bureaucratic politics - and decomposes their predictions. He digs into prominent zombie films and novels, such as Night of the Living Dead and World War Z, to see where essential theories hold up and where they would stumble and fall. Drezner argues that by thinking about outside-of-the-box threats we get a cognitive grip on what former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld famously referred to as the "unknown unknowns" in international security. Correcting the zombie gap in international relations thinking and addressing the genuine but publicly unacknowledged fear of the dead rising from the grave, Theories of International Politics and Zombies presents political tactics and strategies accessible enough for any zombie to digest.

Good concept but felt incomplete
Would you try another book from Daniel W. Drezner and/or Oliver Wyman?
Possibly given the right subject matter.
What did you like best about this story?
The content and analisys is excelent.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Oliver Wyman?
Yes his narration was dry but given the writing style he did the best he could.
Could you see Theories of International Politics and Zombies being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Not that type of book.
Any additional comments?
Given that this started as a research paper and was never planned as a book it was well done. I wish the writer would have expanded the real world parrallels and given more detailed conclusions in the book.
