Table of Contents Preface Cause or Constitution? War and Diplomacy Moral Interventions Legal Interventions Military Interventions Economic Interventions Cultural Interventions Therapeutic Interventions Critical Interventions
Diplomatic Interventions argues that war is a social construction. In so doing, it unsettles the definition of intervention, as a coercive interference by one state in the affairs of another, to examine the range of communicative or 'diplomatic' practices which through their presence modify the experience of war. The tension between claims that war is pervasive and that war is a social construct is analysed in relation to a range of moral, legal, military, economic, cultural, and therapeutic interventions. The concluding chapter highlights how the book itself is a critical intervention that requires us look at again from a new angle at international practice.
