White man’s burden was a common phrase used to justify European imperialism in the 19th and early 20th century.

To prove her theories, she intends to trace the thinking process itself in these societies which lead to establishment of such regimes. She identifies racism and bureaucracy as the "two main political devices" of imperialism.

It argues that realism is not an inaccurate portrayal of the international system but an incomplete one that is a partial picture of reality. She specifically chose to focus on Morgenthau’s six principles because they are the core and most influential studies currently in international relations. Morgenthau’s Six Principles summarized: • International Relations theory is a rational theory
