Clark demonstrates an extraordinary capacity to consider a wide range of contrasting perspectives and draw nuanced conclusions... His examination of the often contested importance of various state and non-stae actors in these cases is at times quite spectacular * International Affairs *
'Clark expands understanding of international legitimacy, explains the role and significance of international norms, and clarifies understanding of the historical evolution of international legitimacy. Throughout the book, Clark raises important historical questions about how principled ideas such as ending the slave trade, addressing the issue of racial equality, establishing social justice, promoting human rights, and spreading democracy around the world came to be established within international society.' * Choice *
'In its historical sensitivity and detailed recovery of political processes, Clarks work exhibits the finest aspects of the English School.' * Ethics and International Affairs *
Clarks is a powerful account and serves as a blueprint on how IR theorists might study World Society in future investigations. It is an impressive work. * Journal of Politics *
Clarks important and interesting study of historical cases adds to a long-standing debate within English School scholarship about the nature and role of world society and its relationship to international society * Review of Politics *
All will certainly profit from Clarks fascinating book Clark has long worked across the boundary between History and International Relations. Throughout his book he carefully evaluates the secondary literature and is scrupulous in identifying the faultlines of historiographical debates * International Studies Review *
Clarks ILWS is clearly written and argued, informed and fascinating in its historical details. * Law and Politics Book Review *
