The problem of power and culture has been thoroughly discussed in Wilfried L.

Joseph S. Nye Jr., and Wiliam A. Owens, "America's Information Age", Foreign Affairs, March/ April 1996, pp. 20-36. Nye defines "soft power" in his Bound to Lead as that which can rest on the appeal of one's ideas or the ability to set the agenda in ways that shape the preferences of others. This can also be described in terms of old-fashioned "ideological warfare" with liberal, not coercive, means.

For a discussion of constructivism as one of the theoretical tools in analyzing post-Cold War international relations, see Chapter 7 in this book, which draws heavily from Wendt, "Anarchy is What States Make of It: The Social Construction of Power Politics", International Relations, Spring 1992, pp. 391-426, and Collective Identity Formation and the InternationalStates
