Bringing together the latest scholarship from a global group of expert contributors, this guide offers a comprehensive examination of the English School approach to the study of international relations.

Beginning with the work of the British Committee on International Relations, the book covers all the major theoretical ideas of the English School and explains the concepts used for analyzing themes, trends, and dilemmas. It shows how the English School mapped out the development of working rules of a European international society that spread to the rest of the world through colonization and imperialism, and details a set of operating institutions, such as diplomacy, the balance of power, and international law. Throughout the book there is an emphasis on the historical and geographical expansion of international society. Insightful and rigorous, this volume demonstrates just what it is that sets the approach of the English School apart from others within international relations.
