This volume brings together a collection of leading scholars to consider various dimensions of the 'turn' to history in International Relations. The scope of this volume is broad. It includes conventional accounts of the development of the European states system, but is not limited by it. Other essays consider the non-European experience; a number of path-breaking essays on how other cultures and continents have ordered their political communities, in particular, the question how and why a states system triumphed over other forms of political organisation. The theme of the subtitle - great transformations - is pursued by each author. The essays consider one of the biggest questions of our time, namely, how did we arrive at this historical and institutional expression of political community? And what alternative future world orders exist? The volume will be of interest to scholars of International Relations and History interested in great transformations in world politics.

'... whatever perspective one brings to [these essays] one is unlikely to be disappointed, such is the overall quality of the papers collected here.' International Affairs

'Readers, or prospective readers, should not ... be put off by the publishing date or labour under a misapprehension that everything changed on 11 September 2001 and, therefore, everything written before that is outdated or not applicable. One of the greatest strengths of this collection of essays is the historical perspective the authors bring to our understanding of 'great transformations.' The Journal of European Affairs
