Editorial Reviews

"Often commented upon, close study of Hedley Bull's ideas of international order in their origins is rare. Robert Ayson's study is doubly welcome, not only in its thoroughness, but in suggesting the relevance of Bull's early experience and training for the formation of his ideas on the foundations of international order." - International Affairs
