The Tragedy of Great Power Politics

John Mearsheimer (b. 1947) is a leading American political scientist and international relations scholar based at the University of Chicago. His book called The Tragedy of Great Power Politics, published in 2001 and updated in 2014, has become a classic in the field for its development of a theory known as “offensive realism”. Learn why Mearsheimer argues that interactions between great powers are driven by a rational desire to achieve regional control (or “hegemony”) within an international system that is “anarchic” (i.e. lacking a global police force), and why he believes that the People’s Republic of China cannot rise peacefully.
