Review


Van der Pijl's innovative concept 'modes of foreign relations' challenges Marxists to revisit international relations and encourages international relations specialists to broaden their horizons as he relates a fascinating interpretation of global politics stretching from nomads to Empires, old and new. A wonderful, provocative book. -- Robert O'Brien, Professor of Global Labour Issues, McMaster University Tracing the history of foreign relations, Kees van der Pijl shows that they are inscribed in daily life. Nomads, Empires, States is an artful study that redefines the field of international studies. -- James H. Mittelman, Professor, School of International Service, American University, Washington, DC Kees van der Pijl's Nomads, Empires, States contributes an analysis of the pre-historic origins and the evolution of 'modes of foreign relations' using a historical materialist-perspective. Significantly, Kees presents his analysis without being encumbered by a nation-state centric framework. His highly accessible tour de force is rich, provocative, and interesting. It is also important for an understanding of this difficult and (hopefully) transitional moment in history. -- George Wright, Professor Emeritus, Department of Poltical science, California State University. Kees Van der Pijl has written a masterful work of historical materialism, showing how human social organization proceeds from its manipulation of nature and technology, how human social organizations are transformed through their 'foreign relations' with other such organizations, and how such relations are becoming internal rather than 'international.'. Whatever one might think of the human future after reading this book, it will certainly leave one thinking about it. -- Ronnie D. Lipschutz, Professor of Politics University of California, Santa Cruz An intellectual tour de force! This important, innovative and insightful book challenges the dominant Euro-centric and state-centric approach to International Relations. By offering an alternative framework based on the concept of 'modes of foreign relations,' Van der Pijl takes us on a journey through time that allows us to grasp the origins and development of 'relations between communities.' -- Susanne Soederberg, Canada Research Chair, Department of Development Studies, Queen's University, Canada. International relations theory, and strands of sociology and political anthropology concerned with globalisation, have in recent times been concerned with challenges to state power and sovereignty, focussing on questions of cross-border movement, in peoples, ideas, capital, on forms of delocalised existence and 'nomadism', be it of corporate elites or migrant workers, and on new understandings of culture, and identity, as shaped by world forces. In this pioneering and ambitious work, as rich in conceptual and theoretical adjudication as it is in historical detail, Kees van der Pijl argues that such issues, far from being particular to the contemporary era, are in fact characteristic of human history as a whole, in its transhumant, mediaeval, imperial and modern forms. The result, in scope a reformulation of international relations theory and history as a whole, is a work of scholarship, imagination, cogency and irreducible humanistic optimism. -- Professor Fred Halliday, LSE Kees van der Pijl has provided a majesterial and authentic historical materialist account of 'foreign relations' that is at once conceptually innovative and deeply historical. This impressive work deserves a very wide readership, particularly by those of us who recognize the importance of van der Pijl's subject but make use of different theoretical traditions. -- Dr Randall Germain, Associate Professor, Carleton University, Canada. Van der Pijl synthesizes a massive amount of research in dividing human history into four main modes of foreign relations: tribal, empire/nomad, sovereign equality, and global governance. A convincing case is made for the power of his theorization of our past and its crucial contribution not only for understanding the present, but also for mapping the paths to desirable futures. -- Robert Albritton, Professor Emeritus, York University, Toronto, Canada
