Example text

In a system of anarchy, according to Hobbes, there is, like rain in England, a perpetual ‘‘disposition’’ to war. For Rousseau, in his famous parable of the stag hunt, war is inevitable because of the security dilemma and the lack of trust between states. Throughout history, armed force has been a ubiquitous characteristic of the relations between independent polities, be they tribes, cities, nation-states or empires. For example, a striking feature of the relations between the Greek city-states in the period 700 to 300 BC was their propensity to engage in warfare; it was almost a constant activity for at least the greatest of the political communities, and undertaken for seemingly trivial reasons.

The Concert of Europe was a loose consultative system among the great powers that developed important norms about when and in what circumstances a government could legitimately use force within Europe. The sovereigns of the era expected that (1) there would be consultations prior to the use of force, (2) no great power would use force that threatened the vital interests of another great power, and (3) any conquests (in Europe) required monitoring, review and possible revision. The League of Nations did not go far beyond these ideas.
