9780231041331: The Anarchical Society: A Study of Order in World Politics

In this, his most systematic and fundamental work, Hedley Bull explores three key questions: what is the nature of order in world politics?; how is it maintained in the contemporary state system?; and what alternative paths to world order are feasible and desirable? He argues that the system of sovereign states is not in decline and is not an obstacle to world order but its essential foundation. This second edition includes a new foreword by Stanley Hoffmann assessing the importance and relevance of Hedley Bull's text some two decades after its initial publication.

About the Author:

Hedley Bull was Montague Burton Professor of International Relations at Oxford University.

Andrew Hurrell is Faculty Fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford University.

Review:

A masterful analysis of the problem of international order in contemporary society and of the feasibility of such alternative models as disarmament, global organization, a highly proliferated world, and a radical redistribution of wealth and power.

(FOREIGN AFFAIRS)

Bull has written that rarest of books: it is not the last, but the first word on its subject.

(Political Science Quarterly)
