Powers and Principles: International Leadership in a Shrinking World
Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
The distinct lack of agreement among major powers today contradicts the idea of an international community bound by a common moral code. International norms nonetheless exert a degree of moral and political force as powerful nations vie for status and influence. Powers and Principles uses a novel and illuminating approach to examine the role of benevolent impulses in international affairs. (Robert Kagan, author of The Return of History and the End of Dreams and Of Paradise and Power: America and Europe in the New World Order.)
If the world of the 21st century is to be governed, and its daunting challenges addressed, the great powers will need to step forward to provide collective leadership. At the same time, this modern concert of powers must also be expanded to including rising states and new global stakeholders. Powers and Principles provides one of the best glimpses of these major players and their agendas. It offers an illuminating survey of the competing visions of global order and the terms upon which constructive order building might be based. (G. John Ikenberry, Princeton University)
