In the first footnote

This is the introduction to a book I’m editing with my friend Thomas Lindemann.  The theme is the role of identities in international politics and the importance of recognition in relations between states.  There are all kinds of super-famous people involved in this project, so it’s really exciting.  Anyway, the article is here:

* Erik Ringmar, The International Politics of Recognition

In contrast to other papers I have on the web, this is very much a first draft (reasonable writing throughout, but some weird footnotes and a couple of pretty underdeveloped arguments).  But there is a reason for this untidyness: I need your feedback.  If you read the chapter and email me comments, we will acknowledge you in the first footnote in the printed version.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
