The theory is most closely associ 1970s and 1980s, international law was widely viewed as irrelevant to the study of international relations. The drought of scholarly work linking international law with international relations ended by the mid-1990s.

He, too, is a crusader, but a crusader of realism. To invoke national interest is a way of defining not a policy but an attitude, of polemicizing against ideologies of perpetual peace.
