Friedrich Kratochwil was a leading voice in constructivist International Relations. In this volume, an impressive array of established scholars reflect on the concerns that have animated his work for over four decades, including the ways in which normative phenomena, political choices and knowledge claims are linked in practice. Always sceptical of grand projects and easy generalizations, he has made a career of documenting complexity and ambiguity while making unexpected connections and following suggestive lines of inquiry. This book reflects the same disposition. For Kratochwil, there is nothing neat, deeply ordered or easily predicted about the world that we have constructed for ourselves, and so it is for the book's contributors. Organized in three parts – Thinking with Kratochwil, Arguing with Kratochwil and Building on Kratochwil – to reflect the dynamic nature and current status of scholarly debates in international politics, On Rules, Politics and Knowledge will figure in these debates for years to come.
