Accommodating the New Nuclear Powers
Notwithstanding the maturity and composure of his first book, it is as the author of its successor, The Anarchical Society, for which Hedley Bull is best known. He is much more often seen as an important theorist of international relations than a leading global authority on arms control. And when scholars have looked for earlier influences they have often been drawn to his works which deal specifically with issues of international order and international relations theory, and to his membership of the British Committee on the Theory of International Politics1 rather than his involvement in London’s strategic studies community. This is precisely what one finds in the more recent literature on Bull’s work and influence.
