Edward Keene argues that the conventional idea of an 'anarchical society' of equal and independent sovereign states is an inadequate description of order in modern world politics. International political and legal order has always been dedicated to two distinct goals: to try to promote the toleration of different ways of life, while advocating the adoption of one specific way, that it labels 'civilization'. The nineteenth-century solution to this contradiction was to restrict the promotion of civilization to the world beyond Europe. That discriminatory way of thinking has now broken down, with the result that a single, global order is supposed to apply to everyone, but opinion is still very much divided as to what the ultimate purpose of this global order should be, and how its political and legal structure should be organised.

Review:

'... an account firmly rooted in a solid theoretical knowledge of the historical discourses of international law and international political theory, and a good grasp of the realities of imperialist and colonialist politics over the last three centuries.' History of Political Thought

'Beyond the Anarchical Society is a cogently written book in which the author presents his key arguments very clearly ... a coherently written book that advances our understanding of how international order was organized in the non-European world. Beyond the Anarchical Society can be recommended to the historically interested reader, but also to all those who are struggling to come to terms with the many tensions in the current international order. Keene succeeds in offerinf a new and intellectually stimulating interpretation'. Cooperation and Conflict

Book Description:

It is commonly argued that the system of state sovereignty is currently in a situation of upheaval. Keene's book questions this assumption, arguing that sovereignty has never existed globally in any case, as international relations beyond the West have been influenced by the norms of colonialism rather than international law.
