Author Information

Michael Cox is Professor Emeritus of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Director of LSE IDEAS - the top ranked university affiliated Think Tank in Europe. The author and editor of over 25 books including major studies on E.H .Carr, the end of the Cold War and US Foreign policy, his more recent work has focused on challenging what he thinks are the three myths of our time: the notion that the 21st century will be Asian, the now widespread view that the decline of the United States is inevitable, and the associated belief that we are moving into a post- western world order. Doug Stokes is Professor of International Relations and Director of the Centre for Advanced International Studies and Faculty Director of Post-Graduate Research at the University of Exeter. He specializes in US foreign policy, international security and debates on grand strategy and has published a number of books, journal articles and book chapters in these areas. Professor Stokes has also advised and presented his research to a range of UK government organisations and agencies and is Senior Associate Fellow at the Royal United Services Institute, a leading defence think tank based in Whitehall.
