Orders of Exclusion

Great Powers and the Strategic Sources of Foundational Rules in International Relations

Kyle M. Lascurettes

  • Offers a new and counterintuitive explanation for great power international order-building motives based on competition and exclusion rather than cooperation and inclusion
  • Examines the utility of four competing motives for explaining great power behavior at nine key moments of order-building opportunity throughout history, from 1648 to 1991
  • Identifies continuities and differences between the contemporary American-led liberal international order and orders of the past, and uses this framework to speak to contemporary debates over the liberal order's future
