National Sovereignty and International Intervention
Under the Westphalian system of international order, each nation is understood to be sovereign and its borders are seen as inviolate. But with the emergence of worldwide problems and the increasing interdependence of nations, it is clear that what happens (or does not happen) in one country can have seriousrepercussions elsewhere. Beyond Westphalia? brings together a distinguished group of scholars to explore the question of whether recent political changes have shifted the balance between the sovereign rights of states and the authority of the larger international community.

Can scholars and students of international relations and world politics concentrate their studies on a different set of theoretical questions than those that were preeminent from 1648 until the end of the Cold War? This book does an excellent job of raising that very issue, with significant contributions from case studies and, more important, interesting theoretical essays.
