About The Book

Understanding how cultural diversity relates to international order is an urgent contemporary challenge. Building on ideas first advanced in Reus-Smits On Cultural Diversity (2018) this groundbreaking book advances a new framework for understanding the nexus between culture and order in world politics. Through a pioneering interdisciplinary collaboration between leading historians international lawyers sociologists and international relations scholars it argues that cultural diversity in social life is ubiquitous rather than exceptional and demonstrates that the organization of cultural diversity has been inextricably tied to the constitution and legitimation of political authority in diverse international orders from Warring States China through early modern Europe and the Ottoman and Qing Empires to todays global liberal order. It highlights the successive diversity regimes that have been constructed to govern cultural difference since the nineteenth century traces the exclusions and resistances these projects have engendered and considers contemporary global vulnerabilities and axes of contestation.
