This book breaks new ground in the way we think about international relations theory. Kees van der Pijl argues that by making the "nation-state" the focus of international relations,the discipline has become Euro-centric and a-historical. Theories of imperialism and historic civilizations,and their relation to world order, have been discarded. With more than half the world's population living in cities,with unprecedented levels of migration,global politics is present on every street corner. The "international" is no longer only a balance of power among states,but includes tribal relations making a comeback in various ways.Outlining a new approach to IR theory, the book makes a case for a re-reading of world history in terms of foreign relations,and shows what it reveals about both our past and our future.

Concluding the acclaimed and award-winning trilogy on 'Modes of Foreign Relations and Political Economy', this is a magisterial historical sociology of International Relations theory. In The Discipline of Western Supremacy Kees van der Pijl argues that, from the late European Middle Ages, Anglophone thinkers articulated an imperial world-view which was adopted by aspirant elites elsewhere. Nation-state formation under the auspices of the English-speaking West has henceforth informed thinking about international affairs. After decolonisation the study of comparative politics continued to develop under those same auspices as part of a comprehensive framework. This book, the first of its kind, aims to provide a complete overview of mainstream International Relations as a set of theories which translate Western supremacy into intellectual hegemony.

A New York Times Notable Book A Daily Beast Best Book of the Year A Huffington Post Best Book of the Year From elementary school on, Walter Kirn knew how to stay at the top of his class: He clapped erasers, memorized answer keys, and parroted his teachers’ pet theories. But when he launched himself eastward to an Ivy League university, Kirn discovered that the temple of higher learning he had expected was instead just another arena for more gamesmanship, snobbery, and social climbing. In this whip-smart memoir of kissing-up, cramming, and competition, Lost in the Meritocracy reckons the costs of an educational system where the point is simply to keep accumulating points and never to look back—or within. From the Trade Paperback edition.
