The essays in Hannah Arendt and International Relations employ the work of this versatile theorist to examine various facets of international affairs.  With contributions written by international political theorists from around the world, the volume draws on Arendt's insights to assess critically the boundaries of international affairs.  Although Arendt did not write directly on international relations as formally understood, her vast corpus has enabled these authors to explore boundaries, human rights, globalization, sovereignty, and organizaed violence in radical new ways.  The first published volume on Arendt and international affairs crosses the boundaries of international relations and political theory, resulting in an important new contribution to political theory. 
Anthony F. Lang, Jr. is a Lecturer in the School of International Relations at the University of St Andrews. John Williams is Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Durham.

Editorial Reviews

"Lots of us in the field of International Relations know something about Hannah Arendt--her inquiries into the pathologies of the 20th century, her bracing affirmation of public life, her own life as emigre and intellectual, her remarkable personal and intellectual affiliations. Yet few of us have seen the relevance of Arendt's work to our own. The great virtue of this book is to show that Arendt's construction of the world, and especially her effort to fit classical republican premises to contemporary circumstances, points up the pathologies of the field--its uncritical realism, liberal yearnings and moral myopia--in more ways than we might have imagined possible."--Nicholas Onuf, Florida International University
