About the Author

Ay e Zarakol is an Assistant Professor of Politics at Washington and Lee University. She teaches courses on global politics, international security and political theory, and her research focuses on the social evolution of the international system and the integration of regions outside of the West into the modern international order.


'A highly sophisticated and impressive book that provides an important contribution to the role of identity in IR. By focussing on three key 'interstitial' states - Japan, Russia and Turkey - which have been located on the 'inferior' side of the 'established-outsider' organising principle of international society, Ayse Zarakol advances a novel understanding of IR that goes beyond extant constructivist and English School theories.' John M. Hobson, University of Sheffield
