This volume is about the discourse and practice of intervention and non-intervention in international relations. The product of a dialogue between theorists of politics, it argues that intervention is endemic in world politics, but people need to move beyond traditional accounts of such practices. In moving towards a more encompassing approach, it explores traditional and post-modern perspectives on the understanding of sovereignty, the state and the state system; conceptions of power, identity and agency; and universal, particularist and contingent justifications for intervention and non-intervention. Historical and contemporary case-studies of intervention are also examined. Ian Forbes is the author of Marx and the New Individual , and Mark Hoffman is also the editor of UK Arms Control in the 1990s .
