This uniquely comprehensive study explains how international societies function across time, starting by examining the ancient state systems before turning to look in detail at the current worldwide international society. In this reissue, a new introduction by Barry Buzan and Richard Little contextualises Watson's original work, situates it alongside current work in the area and summarises and analyses Watson's key arguments.
