This volume is about the discourse and practice of intervention and non-intervention in international relations. The product of a dialogue between theorists of politics, it argues that intervention is endemic in world politics, but people need to move beyond traditional accounts of such practices. In moving towards a more encompassing approach, it explores traditional and post-modern perspectives on the understanding of sovereignty, the state and the state system; conceptions of power, identity and agency; and universal, particularist and contingent justifications for intervention and non-intervention. Historical and contemporary case-studies of intervention are also examined. Ian Forbes is the author of "Marx and the New Individual", and Mark Hoffman is also the editor of "UK Arms Control in the 1990s".
