Revolution and World Order: The Revolutionary State in International Society

The author analyzes the international impact of several different revolutionary states, including the United States, revolutionary France, the Soviet Union, Indonesia, Cuba, the People's Republic of China, Libya and Iran. He argues that there is such a thing as "international society," a composite of international law, norms of diplomacy and balance-of-power considerations that constitutes the environment against which revolutionary states typically lay down their challenge. Those looking for startling conclusions will not find them here.
