What is meant by international society? On what principles is the notion of international society based? How has the notion of nationalism influenced its evolution? In this book James Mayall addresses these questions and sheds important new light upon the issues of nation and international society by bringing together subjects which have hitherto been examined separately. Mayall locates his study within a theoretical discussion of the relationship between the ideas of nationalism and international society, maintaining that it is one of challenge and accommodation. He then explores three central issues. First, the manner in which nationalism has created new states and pushed the boundaries of international society outwards. Second, how the confrontation between nationalist and liberal ideas about international economic relations has impelled state activity downward into the lives of ordinary people and outward into the international political economy. And third, the way Third World nationalism has reacted against the postwar international economic order but has been unable to alter it in its favour. Nationalism and international society will be of interest to specialists and students of international relations with special reference to nationalism and sovereignty, and to modern historians of world order, decolonisation and economic nationalism.

Im Sog der Katastrophe

Lateinamerika und der Erste Weltkrieg

Als in den Augusttagen 1914 die Nachricht vom Kriegsausbruch in Europa in Lateinamerika bekannt wurde, sprach man dort von einem »Drama der gesamten Menschheit«, in dem es keine Zuschauer geben könne. Viele Beobachter stimmten darin überein, dass in diesem Sommer eine Epoche endete und eine neue Ära begann. In Lateinamerika, das durch die neuartige Form des Propagandakriegs und die neuen Kommunikationstechnologien direkter als je zuvor in die Ereignisse der »Alten Welt« involviert war, gab der Krieg den Anlass zu emanzipatorischen Bestrebungen, die sich während des Konflikts – oder unmittelbar nach Kriegsende – bemerkbar machten. Seit längerer Zeit bestehende Konfliktpotenziale verschärften sich durch die »Urkatastrophe des 20. Jahrhunderts« und mündeten in neue soziale Bewegungen, deren Ausrichtung höchst unterschiedlich war. Die weltumspannende Dimension der Geschichte des »Großen Krieges« wird in diesem Buch aus der Perspektive eines Kontinents analysiert, der nur auf den ersten Blick am Rand der Ereignisse stand, sich aber durch den Flächenbrand in Europa stark veränderte.

This book celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by showing how global human rights norms have influenced national government practices in eleven different countries around the world. Had the principles articulated in the Declaration had any effect on the behavior of states towards their citizens? What are the conditions under which international human rights norms are internalized in domestic practices? And what can we learn from this case about why, how, and under what conditions international norms in general influence the actions of states? This book draws on the work of social constructivists to examine these important issues. The contributors examine eleven countries representing five different world regions - Northern Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe - drawing practical lessons for activists and policy makers concerned with preserving and extending the human rights gains made during the past fifty years.

The Refugee in International Society

With the unrelenting unrest in places such as Iraq, Afghanistan and the Sudan, the plight of refugees has become an increasingly discussed topic in international relations. Why do we have refugees? When did the refugee 'problem' emerge? How can the refugee ever be reconciled with an international system that rests on sovereignty? Looking at three key periods - the inter-war period, the Cold War and the present day - Emma Haddad demonstrates how a specific image has defined the refugee since the international states system arose in its modern form and that refugees have thus been qualitatively the same over the course of history. This historical and normative approach suggests new ways to understand refugees and to formulate responses to them. By examining the issue from an international society perspective, this book highlights how refugees are an inevitable, if unanticipated, result of erecting political borders.
