International Security Notes 11 October 2010 Office Hours, every Tuesday 10-12 What is Power? It is not always clear who has more power than others when we say i.e., that the US is more powerful that Russia, what does that mean? Robert Dahl A has power over B, in that A can make B do things that it would not otherwise do power is influence we never observe the influence of causation, we observe action A and action B (when can only infer the links between the two) 1. saying that A defeated B, and was therefore more powerful, is an tautology (we don’t learn any new information) 2. Military Power is the kind of power that matters most in IR financial power is also important because it is measurable however, it does not give much credence that other things might be at play (a strategic military, geography, population, etc...) A is more powerful that B, because I think that if A and B were to go to war, then A would win (A>B)

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
