Why? -it’s been glorified -men are always seen as war heroes or martyrs -war is a major business that belongs to IR The consequence of war: CASUALTIES -but yet we still can’t get rid of it Memorials for war Ancient Modern -art -written art -heuristic approach -war is not glorified, rather the -visual losts are remembered -we see names, paying more attention to “ordinary” aspects= peoples approach This difference began in 17 th century -shifted from large scale King & Queen Nations to WE are the nation. Populist Approach Timeline of IR Systems Major landmarks  IR before 1648 PARALLEL WORLDS o Middle East/Mediterranean world o East Asia/Southeast Asia Chinese “world” Tianxia o Other “worlds”- South Asia, America, Africa th  Westphalia Treaty & Expansion of Westphalia System (post 17 century) o Achieved through colonization o Westphalia=No central government  From Many worlds to one world o Colonization and decolonization  Globalization and its many versions & phases  WWII & current globalization Politics -constructing Public Authority -Human organization diming toward creating order & security -Organization needs order Human Political Systems in history -tribes (blood ties) -the state-supreme political organization -world government (yet to be accomplished INTERNATIONAL POLITICS Three basic forms of world politics 1. Imperial System a. government controls most of the world with which it has contact example: Roman or Aztec Empire 2. Feudal System a. Human loyalties & Political obligations not fixed by territorial boundaries example: Europe after the Roman Empire 3. Anarchic System of States a. States relatively cohesive but without higher government above them example: city-states of Ancient Greece What does the word State mean? Supreme/highest level supporting order equivalent to countries **in any civilized society humans don’t have sovereignty** Peer Recognition is important, but not vital States can kill & be heroic! HOWEVER gangs, people, mafia etc are punished. The state is only human organization that can kill without consequence 3 Different Ways of creating public authority and providing order and security 1. Democracy a. People have input in power. Its shared. Majority wins. (which undermines minorities) 2. Dictatorship a. Ruled by one 3. Authoritarianism a. A mix: rule by a few Which system is best? -situational on time and culture -none are perfect, each have flaws -opinion of the class: democracy is the “least evil” of the three -benevolent dictatorship
