Reviews - What do customers think about Power in Transition: The Peaceful Change of International Order?

Toward a theory of peaceful power transition  Feb 25, 2002
This book has basically to do with answering two critical questions."Can the impending transition to multipolarity be managed peacefully?" If yes, "under what conditions and through what causal mechanisms can power transitions occur peacefully?" (P.2) The book offers three factors that make peaceful power transition possible. First, benignity or benign images that current hegemon and rising power have vis-à-vis each other. Second, order that these powers negotiate about power transition. Third, legitimacy that rising power will have over upcoming order in the eyes of current hegemon and other world powers. While strategic restraint and mutual accommodation lead to emergence of benign images, similar or shared identities, cultures also result in benignity. Hierarchy of prestige, rules about trade and about use of force, procedures for managing territorial change, and mutual recognition of spheres of influence are basic elements of order that should be negotiated between current hegemon and challenging power. Legitimacy as leading element for socialized instability in international system is mostly dealt with multilateral framework, in which hegemonic power has to do with other states and/or actors in world politics. On the basis of these three fundamental concepts, Power in Transition tests and illustrates its theoretical arguments with three historical cases; rapprochement between the United States and Great Britain in the late 19th century, the Concert of Europe (1815-1848), and ASEAN. In all these historical illustrations benignity, order and legitimacy play significant role though not equally. This work also has a fundamental assumption that power, institutions, identities and ideas altogether significantly matter in peaceful transition of international order. Although the authors have argued that this book is not a definitive study rather it is just brainstorming about peaceful systemic change it is well beyond this modest standing. It deserves close attention by all students of systemic change and international relations.
