  1. Richard Ned Lebow & Mark Irving Lichbach (eds.) (2007). Theory and Evidence in Comparative Politics and International Relations. Palgrave Macmillan.
    This book explores the epistemology and the methodology of political knowledge and social inquiry. What can we know, and how do we know? Friedrich V.

Brian Pollins and Fred Chernoff accept their arguments to some degree and explore the implications for logical positivism. David A. Waldner, Jack Levy, and Andrew Lawrence address the purpose and methods of research. They debate the role of explanation (...)

  4. Richard Ned Lebow (2014). Constructing Cause in International Relations. Cambridge University Press.
    Cause is a problematic concept in social science, as in all fields of knowledge. We organise information in terms of cause and effect to impose order on the world, but this can impede a more sophisticated understanding. In his latest book, Richard Ned Lebow reviews understandings of cause in physics and philosophy and concludes that no formulation is logically defensible and universal in its coverage. This is because cause is not a feature of the world but a cognitive shorthand we (...)

  8. Richard Ned Lebow (2009). The Tragic Vision of Politics: Ethics, Interests and Orders. Cambridge University Press.
    Is it possible to preserve national security through ethical policies? Richard Ned Lebow seeks to show that ethics are actually essential to the national interest. Recapturing the wisdom of classical realism through a close reading of the texts of Thucydides, Clausewitz and Hans Morgenthau, Lebow argues that, unlike many modern realists, classic realists saw close links between domestic and international politics, and between interests and ethics. Lebow uses this analysis to offer a powerful critique of post-Cold War American foreign policy. (...)
