Exorcising the Ghost of Westphalia: Building World Order in the New Millennium

For upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level courses in International Relations Theory, Peace Studies, Theories of War, International Security, Conflict Resolution and International Law. The authors of this groundbreaking text take as a point of departure the precedent-setting agreements established by the Treaties of Westphalia to illuminate options for maintaining peace. The text describes the system of world order established by the Peace of Westphalia and offers students an evaluation of its declining relevance for the increasingly globalized world of the early twenty-first century, as well as proposing an alternative system of global governance.
