The authors each look into a different theory of international relations in a bid to understand how the whole international system works (David A 74). International relations are the basic manner in which different states of the world relate with each other. It is important to note that, there are different positions that the countries of the world each hold. This is why there are super powers of the world and third countries need to relate with each other. There are more needs, to be sanity maintained in the world thus the need for power and co-operation among the states. It is almost obvious, that those in power are also the ones the ones who have the large chunk of the world's material wealth in their possession.
[...] In conclusion thus, the Serbs and Albanians were fighting each other either looking for security or power as the above theory posits. It is therefore right to say tahgt5 states fight each due mainly due to the two reasons, looking for security and or power. It is also of great importance to note that there must be standard rules in the international system if there is to be any unity, order, co-operation and discipline in this system (David A 600).

[...] This theory also looks at states as a united front. This is not the case as each state will look into developing itself and dealing with its personal interests. An individual state will thus look at getting as many resources as it can before it can unite with the other countries of the world to come up with a united front. The theory also looks at the core importance of any state as survival, which is why each state will set up a military in a bid to promote the security of its citizens. [...]
[...] Marc Lynch looked into the critical theory of international relations which is basically a collection of various theories. These theories primarily lay criticism on other theories which are Meta theoretical, political and theoretical theories of international relations. These schools tend to differ from the other theories in terms of epistemology and ontology. They are not however very common and are not taken very seriously and more over they look at international relations very lightly in theoretical terms.
