Overview

The Global Covenant, a ground-breaking work by one of the leading scholars in international relations, rejuvenates the classical international society approach and brings it into contact with the new era of world politics. This major study presents a comprehensive analysis of the most important international issues of our time, including peace and security, war and intervention, human rights, failed states, territories and boundaries, and democracy. It profitably draws on diplomatic and military history, international legal studies, and international political theory to address basic methodological questions and to present the elements of a human sciences approach to the study of world politics. The Global Covenant endeavors to justify the world-wide state system as a foundation of political freedom, and envisions the future of international society in the 21st century.
