До начала 20-го века считалось, что произведения Гомера являются чистой выдумкой и что для исследователя, они могут быть полезны разве что в изучении социальных отношений и психологии ранней античности. Но нашелся человек (естественно, не ученый), который думал иначе, искал и удивил весь мир очень вескими аргументами в пользу своей точки зрения. И, как мне кажется, в пользу сказок в целом.

Example text

Can such a judgment be based upon a systematic methodology, rather than just intuition? International relations (IR) theory provides some thoughts on these questions. The subject of IR seeks to describe and explain the relationships between actors in international politics. The subject seeks to identify and explain change, identify patterns and trends, and explain how actors (states, individuals, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, multinational corporations) relate to each other and to the world as a whole.

The US withdrew from the ILO between 1977 and 1980 and from UNESCO in 1985, and refused to sign the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention. The 1985 Kassebaum Amendment involved a significant reduction of the US share of assessed contributions. The 1985 Sundquist Amendment threatened to withhold some of the US contribution to secretariat salaries. If Israel was expelled, suspended, denied its rights or credentials, the US would suspend its own participation and reduce its contribution. ’’32 In some corners of the US, this attitude, in its twenty-first century guise, is conveyed quite forthrightly.

2 The United States, power, and multilateralism Multilateralism – its forms, effectiveness and limitations – is inseparable from power in international relations, in all its manifestations. For this reason, a great deal of attention has been paid to the attitudes and actions of the US, as the world’s preeminent military and economic power, because these directly influence the prospects of international organizations and other multilateral arrangements. There is a claim, popular after the Cold War, that the problems of multilateralism are a logical outcome of the present distribution of international power, and specifically US power.
