The Anarchical Society: A Study of Order in World Politics
The Anarchical Society: A Study of Order in World Politics
By Hedley Bull
Columbia University Press, 1977, 335 pp.

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 radical redistribution of wealth and power. Bull rejects these models and argues that the state system can provide order, peace and justice.
