Kamran Karami reacted to his death news “Devastated to hear about Robert Jervis passing. He was a great theorist of realism and founder of the theory of perception & misperception in IR. Jervis in his book focuses on psychological factors influencing the behavior of foreign policy decision-makers.”
RIP Robert Jervis. For me the most interesting and important IR scholar of his generation. His System Effects is also the most undervalued book in the discipline. In the Foreword he hilariously lists all the bodies that refused him funding.
