Industry Reviews

Reviews of previous editions: 'A masterful analysis of the problem of international order in contemporary society and of the feasibility of such alternative models as disarmament, global organization, a highly proliferated world, and a radical redistribution of wealth and power.' - Foreign Affairs 'An important book likely to be read with profit for along time to come.' - The Times Literary Supplement 'Bull has written that rarest of books: it is not the last, but the first word on its subject.' - Political Science Quarterly
