The book re-examines Hedley Bull’s classic text The Anarchical Society, forty years after it was first published in 1977. The Anarchical Society is considered one of the classic texts in International Relations, although it does not address contemporary political issues such as terrorism, global financial crises, climate change, the impact of the internet revolution, deep-rooted racial inequalities, and violence against women. Dr Humphreys’ new book examines how far The Anarchical Society continues to illuminate world politics and how well Bull’s method and argument stand up today. It argues that although many of Bull’s substantive judgments require updating, his approach remains valuable, not only for thinking about enduring problems of violence and security, but also, as a starting point, for thinking about many issues that Bull himself neglected.
