Example text

All considered, however, it is nonetheless questionable whether our world still hangs together in the international sense. It would take considerable myopia to look at IR’s declared subject matter through an IBO-sensitized lens and miss the fact that the “inter” is now thoroughly crisscrossed (and zonally yoked) by the “sub,” the “trans,” the “intra,” and the “supra” (Ong 1999, 4).

From among the many interesting arguments presented in this chapter, three seem particularly noteworthy. ” Second, the formative impact of territoriality as the organizing principle of the modern state system has been so decisive because it has penetrated into our deepest normative understandings, not only of states and sovereignty but also of society and community.
