Politics Without Sovereignty: A Critique of Contemporary International Relations by Philip Cunliffe
English | Oct. 30, 2007 | ISBN: 0415418062 | 225 Pages | PDF | 1 MB
Written by leading scholars, this volume challenges the recent trend in international relations scholarship – the common antipathy to sovereignty.
The classical doctrine of sovereignty is widely seen as totalitarian, producing external aggression and internal repression. Political leaders and opinion-makers throughout the world claim that the sovereign state is a barrier to efficient global governance and the protection of human rights.
