"International relations is reinventing itself as global international relations. Contesting International Society in East Asia illustrates that the turn to global international relations is part of the present as well as the future. The editors have brought together influential theorists of the East Asian region to grasp how the region hangs together and also what makes it "hang together differently". This book will be warmly received by scholars and practitioners looking for more interpretive depth than is offered by the power shift narrative."
