Rose, Richard (2008) What would you tell the president in three minutes about Iraq. European Political Science, 7 (1). pp. 78-83. ISSN 1680-4333Full text not available in this repository. (Request a copy from the Strathclyde author)
A Ph.D. is not a qualification to decide a country's foreign policy, but it should not be a disqualification from communicating with people whose choices are not entirely rational. Founders of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) learned to do this in occupied Europe during the Second World War. I learned it in libraries and working on newspapers. So, instead of talking about Iraq in an Oval Office meeting with President Bush I offered a parable about Northern Ireland, supported by quotations from Max Weber and Isaiah Berlin.
