Sample text

In the face of this prejudice, one should remember that in the Middle Ages, in addition to the centrifugal forces, there were strong countervailing forces of ecclesiastical and secular universalism that generated a considerable degree of cohesiveness. Thus understood, medievalism is a viable alternative to the modern state system and should be recognized as a possible foundation for and manifestation of order. 2 Global governance If the conceptual contours of new medievalism are somewhat difficult to pin down, this is even worse for the concept of global governance.

Behind many scenarios of new medievalism, there is a false dichotomy of modern order vs. (neo)medieval disorder. But what about such modern experiences as total warfare and mutual assured destruction? It is a sad truism that disorder and violence have walked along with history, and there are no signs that violence and disorder are going to pass away. The conventional understanding of new medievalism as the world going back to the Dark Ages implies the ontological prejudice of taking the modern system of sovereign nation states for the only possible guarantor of world political order.

Transatlantic Governance in the Global Economy (Lanham, Rowman and Littlefield, 2001). 21 Insofar as it is understood as a device to overcome market failures and collective action problems, global governance is closer to rational-choice institutionalism than to the logic of political action. To bring this home, it is useful to recall Richard Ashley’s distinction of three modes of economism. First, historical economism means that the denationalization of the capitalist mode of production and trade is reified as a sort of historical necessity with no escape for political actors.
