Chapter 9 Realist Paths to Peace -“Forming alliances with other countries to offset the military might of an adversary, and negotiating arms control agreements to maintain strategic parity.” -Realists believe that weakness invites aggression -Balance of Power is the idea that state security and survival is most likely when there is a rough military parity among rivals. --Rules to maintain a balance of power Stay vigilant- constantly watch foreign developments and to identify emerging threats. International anarchy makes states responsible for their own security and can never be too sure of an opposing states intentions. o Balance of Power- theory that national survival in an anarchic world is most likely when military power is distributed to prevent a single hegemon or bloc from dominating the state system.

    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.
