    Chamberlin, Paul; Gurney, Ursula; Irwin, Ryan; McMahon, Robert
    In his 1972 essay "The Diffusion of Power," Walt Rostow noted the shift in power in the world community away from Washington and Moscow.Particularly concerned with the developing world, he asked a question that has yet to be fully answered: "Are men capable of organizing this fragile global community of diffusing power in reasonably stable and peaceful ways, or will the diffusion of power lead to more violence and disorder than we already know?" This conference will explore how this "diffusion of power" transformed global politics in the 1960s and beyond. Bringing together graduate students and junior faculty, it...

  5. What is War?

    Mueller, John; O'Connell, Mary Ellen
    How should we define war? This is not just an academic question. The most basic human rights -- including the right to life, the right to a trial, the right to own property -- all depend on whether a conflict is legally definable as war or not. At the moment there is no clear legal line dividing the two situations. Governments tend to deny that fighting on their territories is war, arguing instead that it is “criminal activity,” and claiming that they have it under control. Following the September 11 attacks, the United States reversed the trend, declaring war where...
