The essays in Hannah Arendt and International Relations employ the work of this versatile theorist to examine various facets of international affairs. With contributions written by international political theorists from around the world, the volume draws on Arendt's insights to assess critically the boundaries of international affairs. Although Arendt did not write directly on international relations as formally understood, her vast corpus has enabled these authors to explore boundaries, human rights, globalization, sovereignty, and organizaed violence in radical new ways. The first published volume on Arendt and international affairs crosses the boundaries of international relations and political theory, resulting in an important new contribution to political theory.
