12. Historical examples
You could use the Cold War and the World Wars. I did my research paper in international relations on balance of power alliance theory. That is the theory that states will align against the state with the most power (Bad news for the U.S. now). There is also bandwagoning theory that holds that states ally with powerful states out of self preservation. The theory that you seem to be looking at is called balance of interests theory. I cannot think of the theorists off the top of my head. It holds that states may ally with the stronger states or the weaker states against the stronger state based upon its interests.
