In the first part of the book an historical overview of the international political theory on the 'Westphalia System' is presented, with brief accounts of the law of nations, and the notion of an 'international society' as well as an examination of the international thought of the Enlightenment and of nineteenth- century industrial society.

Review

"Chris Brown has written the first comprehensive text on international political theory as an established field of inquiry. Grounding his discussion on the history of international thought while avoiding entanglement in abstruse metatheoretical debates, he treats all the important topics: sovereignty, war, human rights, humanitarian intervention, global justice, cultural diversity and globalization. Consistently clear, illuminating, provocative and entertaining, this book is the best starting place for those who want to understand the state of international political theorizing today." Terry Nardin, University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee "Chris Brown argues that the importance of international political theory lies in its concern with the real issues that affect the lives of ordinary people. Central to this agenda are questions of sovereignty, rights and justice. The book addresses these issues in a comprehensive and combative style: this is vintage Brown." Professor Ken Booth, University of Wales "It gives a very interesting and comprehensive introduction to the state of international political theory today ... In addition, Brown has a pleasant and accessible style of writing ... A very good introduction." Acta Politica

From the Back Cover

Sovereignty, Rights and Justice surveys the relationship between international relations theory and political theory, showing the way in which these two discourses, once considered separate, are now intertwined. In the first part of the book an historical overview of the international political theory on the ‘Westphalia System′ is presented, with brief accounts of the law of nations, and the notion of an ‘international society′ as well as an examination of the international thought of the Enlightenment and of nineteenth– century industrial society. International theory in the twentieth century is then examined, leading into a consideration of some of the key issues of late–twentieth–century international relations, including the rights of political communities; the ethics of force in international relations; human rights; humanitarian intervention; global social justice and the moral relevance of borders; cultural diversity and the ‘Asian values′ debate. In the final chapters, the impact of globalization on all these issues is examined. This is an accessible introduction to one of the most important areas of contemporary political theory, and one based firmly on the analysis of real–world problems.

First Sentence
Consider: homeless people sleep in doorways in the Strand in central London while single mothers in 'sink' estates in greater Glasgow bring up their children in poverty, British citizens of Black or Asian origin report that they regularly experience racial discrimination and the life-chances of British women remain significantly different from those of British men. Read the first page
