Written in an autoethnographical narrative form, The Politics of Exileoffers a unique insight into the complex encounter of researcher with research subject, in the context of the Bosnian War and its aftermath. Exploring themes of guilt, personal and civilisational, of displaced and fractured identity, of secrets and subterfuge, love and distance and alienation, of moral choice and terror, this work moves beyond mainstream scholarship to provide a compelling work that challenges us to recognise true narrative as an accepted form of writing in international relations. Bringing theory to life and giving a wide range of concepts in international relations a corporeal reality, Dauphinee uses her own experiences to shed light on the often difficult position of new academics and junior researchers and their struggles to get their foot in the intellectual door of the field. This innovative and engaging work will be essential reading for all students and scholars of international relations.
