This uniquely comprehensive historical study analyses and explains how international societies function. After examining the ancient state systems, the author looks in more detail at our worldwide contemporary society, which grew out of them.
The book demonstrates that relations between states are not normally anarchic, but organized international or supernational societies regulated by elaborate rules and practices, which derive substantially from experience. Our present international society, for all its individuality, is only the latest in the series.
The Evolution of International Society is a major contribution to international theory, and to our understanding of how relations between states operate. Current interest in international order and hegemonial authority, and the renewed concern with history in political science, make this a timely book.
