Abstract

Both Analytical Liberalism and Neo-Classical Realism focus on domestic factors influencing foriegn policy, yet each models the political process in a different way, identifying different sources of change. To illustrate the strengthes and weaknesses of each, I examine British policy in four domains in the years prior to World War I. Depending on the nature of the issue, one approach is more useful than the other.

Keywords: analytical liberalism, neo-classical realism, trade, monetary policy, security policy, Britain
