I will pay for the following article Kosovo War 1999 and International Relations. The work is to be 6 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. 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 superpowers 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 worlds material wealth in their possession.

The realism theory as explained by Jeffrey Taliaferro in his book, “Neoclassical Realism: The Psychology of Great Power Intervention” is in two broad parts. neorealist and classical realism. Neoclassical realism is basically a theory of international relations that seeks to explain the relationship between various countries. This theory posits that, any action that a state undertake, can be explained using various system variables: these are, the distribution of powerful abilities and capabilities among states, the perception that there are system pressures, the threats and intentions of other states is also an important variable in this theory and last but not least is the domestic variables used to quantify it, these are, the elite, state institutions and those who hold power and control decision making in the various countries (David 78).

Taliaferro argues that classical realism and neorealist both posit that, the actions of a state are predictable and can be understood by the virtue of the power that they hold in relation to other states in the foreign system. Thus neoclassical realism according to Taliaferro, application of the traditional realism theory in that it brings together a state’s need for power and that for security with probability predictions about how a state will respond to systematic imperatives.
