Ever lose yourself in an issue of "International Security" or "Foreign Affairs"? Ever stay up late devising solutions to conflicts in the Middle East or arguing about the rise of China or the consequences of nuclear proliferation? Ever heard of Kenneth Waltz, Robert Keohane, John Mearsheimer, E.H. Carr, Stephen Walt, Peter Katzenstein, Robert Powell, Duncan Snidal, Jack Snyder, or James Fearon? Ever admired the work of great statesmen (such as Otto von Bismarck, honored in the group's photo), been fascinated by the intrigues of diplomacy and institutions, or weighed the relative merits of "realism" and "idealism"?
If so, you know who you are - and this group is for you.
