The Breaking of Nations by Robert Cooper
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this landmark book, Robert Cooper sets out his radical interpretation of the new world order that has emerged from the debris of communism. He defines all states as belonging to one of three types: lawless 'pre-modern' states; 'modern' states that are fiercely protective of their sovereignty and 'postmodern' states that operate on the basis of openness, law and mutual security. The United States, Cooper shows, has yet to decide whether to embrace the 'postmodern' world or pursue unilateralism and power politics. As Cooper demonstrates the key question confronting Europeans is whether to use the rougher methods of an earlier era - force, pre-emptive attack, deception - to safeguard what they have achieved. The Breaking of Nations is an essential account of the times in which we live.
