We are living in an era which seemingly defies description: in social and political theory, our age is frequently referred to as "postmodern;" in international relations, we remain in the "post-Cold War" age. The age is only characterized by what it is not. This collection of critical reflections, written by leading scholars in the field, will shed light on the meanings of world politics in what we are calling The Interregnum.
