This title was first published in 2001. Questioning the authority of the discipline of international relations, in particular structural realism, to recognize the influence of varied social phenomena on possible outcomes, this book demonstrates how seemingly insignificant acts propagated through music, humour and poetry can disturb official culture and initiate social change. This thought-provoking work is compelling reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of both international relations and cultural studies alike.
