War, Revolution, and the Uncertain Primacy of Domestic Politics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

It is the “long debate.”1 In it, the school of thought arguing the case for a primacy of domestic politics, originally advanced by Eckart Kehr, has gradually extruded the older Rankean notion of the Primat der Aussenpolitik (primacy of foreign policy).
