This rich collection of original essays pays tribute to Stanley Hoffmann, a preeminent scholar of international relations and French politics who has inspired former students to explore the links between domestic society and foreign policy and between theory and practice. In two autobiographical chapters, Hoffmann traces his personal odyssey from France to America, and in a moving testament of shared teaching and learning, the late Judith Shklar clarifies their generation’s immense influence on contemporary political science. With a comprehensive overview by Linda B. Miller and Michael Joseph Smith, this volume provides an indispensable record of intellectual achievement from the origins of World War II to the turbulent aftermath of the Cold War.
