Abstract

Most academics are pleased if they are able to exercise some influence in one particular field of intellectual debate over the course of their career. Chalmers Johnson, in contrast, played a key role in at least four of the critical debates in international and comparative politics since the 1970s. He was the author of invariably controversial propositions that were variously to question the underpinnings of orthodoxy and more radical opinion. Much of the energy expended in these debates was often consumed with defending or attacking the Johnson position.
