    • ashis kumar ads says:

      realism is a concept(theory) of international politics.i think it has been given such a name as it deals with the bare truth of international politics .it became popular in contrast to idealism which failed by the outbreak of world war2 in 20th century.realism insists that human being has the inherent craving for power and to dominate nation-states are always in search for power in world politics for which the statesmen do not bother about the means to their ends.even if they can resort to only due to the human nature(lust for power,to dominate others) that international politics is being driven by jealousy,hatredness ,fear, the realists are so pessimistic about the human nature that they tend to rely on the conventional principles of diplomacy(international morality,international law,world public opinion) rather than on human nature.power,national interest and national security are the central theme to realism.thank u.i would like ur rply.
