As one of the first holders of a Chair in International Relations, Charles Manning was a significant early proponent of and advocate for the now wildly popular academic study of international relations. In his lifetime he may have lost the battle over the vision of the discipline that he propounded. But it is arguable that his views resonate more today than they did when he died in 1978.
