About this book

Offering a comprehensive account of the work of Hedley Bull, Ayson analyses the breadth of Bull's work as a Foreign Office official for Harold Wilson's government, the complexity of his views, including Bull's unpublished papers, and challenges some of the comfortable assertions about Bull's place in the English School of IR.

Reviews

"Often commented upon, close study of Hedley Bull's ideas of international order in their origins is rare. Robert Ayson's study is doubly welcome, not only in its thoroughness, but in suggesting the relevance of Bull's early experience and training for the formation of his ideas on the foundations of international order." - International Affairs
