In this book, de Montbrial lays the foundation for a praxeology, or a "science of action," to facilitate a better understanding of the dynamics of international problems and a more systematic approach to policy making. He develops a model to analyze different types of international problems that arise from interactions between different units; he then applies this model to a range of current and historical problems.

Thierry de Montbrial is president and founder of the French Institute of International Relations (IFRI) and of the World Policy Conference (WPC).
