About the authors

Dr. J. E. Landrum

My academic interests are focused on international relations, security studies, and history. In terms of epistemological focus, I have been influenced by all of the various writers form the realist school of international relations. However, the most important influence has been from Hedley Bull and Martin Wight, which puts me firmly in the so called "London School" of international relations. From a historical perspective, I greatly admire the methodology of Arthur Schlesinger, John Lewis Gaddis, and Hal Brands. I enjoy following sports, spending time outdoors, and fellowship with my family.
