..are incapable of getting tenure at an American university?
I did a Masters at St Andrews and the number of terrible Americans working there was quite shocking. They really dragged the place down - and I write this as an American.
You were at St Andrews, so... sample bias?
OP doesn't understand such things. As he said, he did an MA at St Andrew's, famous for a School of IR consisting of 25 qually faculty who think causality might exist and 25 who are convinced it's just a neoliberal lie.
And obviously I use famous quite loosely.
I think you'll find his wife (Kaari) wrote them. And check when he got his PhD (pre-2000). I think disgrace is a fair enough description.
Come on now, 1 ISQ, 1 JCR and 1 EJIR forthcoming. No, none of them are solo authored, but disgrace is a bit strong.
"publishing loads" lol.
You might want to check when they graduated and compare that to their record. It's not complicated.
All four of them have terrible profiles and clearly are deadwood in exile, stealing jobs from decent people. LMFAO that Harkness is a Keohane protege. Another (yet again) failure churned out by the Ayatollah.
^ They don't seem too bad to me--they're publishing loads, perhaps not in my quantitative area, but St. Andrews can hire who they wish.
