The Myth Of International Order
Why Weak States Persist And Alternatives To The State Fade Away
Sobre o livro
This ambitious book takes on a fundamental political puzzle: most states in the international system are 'weak' states, states unable to monopolize violence or provide public goods, and yet the nation-state remains the primary organizational form for world politics. In addressing this, Arjun Chowdhury shows why states everywhere face popular dissatisfaction with their performance, and why addressing this dissatisfaction - through institutional alternatives to thestate like the European Union, or through higher taxation - is so difficult.
