This book provides a contextual account of the first anarchist
theory of war and peace, and sheds new light on our contemporary
understandings of anarchy in International Relations. Although
anarchy is arguably the core concept of the discipline of
international relations, scholarship has largely ignored the
insights of the first anarchist, Pierre-Joseph Proudhon. Proudhon's
anarchism was a critique of the projects of national unification,
universal dominion, republican statism and the providentialism at
the heart of enlightenment social theory. While his break with the
key tropes of modernity pushed him to the margins of political
theory, Prichard links Proudhon back into the republican tradition
of political thought from which his ideas emerged, and shows how
his defence of anarchy was a critique of the totalising modernist
projects of his contemporaries. Given that we are today moving
beyond the very statist processes Proudhon objected to, his
writings present an original take on how to institutionalise
justice and order in our radically pluralised, anarchic
Rethinking the concept and understanding of anarchy, "Justice,
Order and Anarchy" will be of interest to students and scholars of
political philosophy, anarchism and international relations
