Notable Title: The Anarchical Society

Over four decades after its publication, Hedley Bull’s The Anarchical Society continues to define and direct work in international relations. Bull’s work has been praised for its flexibility — there is much more to it than the international society perspective that it immediately brings to mind! This book is the central text of the English School of International Relations, which consists of intellectuals who espouse Bull’s belief that, despite anarchy, or lack of one global ruler, on the international level there is nonetheless a society of states that operates successfully on a global scale.
