Abstract:

Michael Rustin connects the debate about Iraq and war to competing theories of the new world order, notably Bobbitt's The Shield of Achilles and Hardt and Negri's Empire. He argues that a system of sovereign states joined in an international legal order remains the only defence of democratic principles against a new imperialism - the global capitalist system dominated by a military superpower.
