Neorealism, according to Waltz and his critics, cannot explain change (Waltz 1979: 323–330), although some scholars disagree with Waltz’s view of his own theory. Others might say that neorealism is a theory of change insofar as it indirectly explains why things do not change; why certain patterns of behavior—balances—recur in world politics, under the unrelenting, seemingly immutable nature of anarchy. But non-change is a different dependent variable than change. Explaining persistence and change are not the same undertakings, albeit Waltzian theory provides one perspective on prospects for core change in world politics.
