About the Authors
  • In Simulating Sovereignty Cynthia Weber presents a critical analysis of the concept of sovereignty. Examining the justifications for intervention offered by the Concert of Europe, President Wilson's administration, and the Reagan-Bush administrations, the author combines critical international relations theory and foreign policy analysis to offer an original and important contribution to the understanding of sovereignty, the state and intervention in international relations theory.

    • Trendy IR theory analyzing the relationship between state sovereignty and outside intervention
    • Case studies include US invasions of Grenada and Panama, and US intervention in the Russian Civil War
    • Weber is a rising young star, whose article on this subject is well-known and won a prize as best article in the Review of International Studies

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This is an important and brilliant book. Weber travels through extremely difficult theoretical terrain with enviable ease and disarming simplicity. It needs to be read to be believed. What is more, this is done without once resorting to simplistic philosophical accounts … [those] interested in joining the debate, should definitely give this book a serious read.' International Affairs
