                                            February 21, 2023 | 7 pm (AEDT) | Book Discussion: Ascending Order: Rising Powers and the                                                      Politics of Status in International Institutions (CUP, 2022)


                                                   About the Book:

                                                  Ascending Order offers the first comprehensive study of conflict and cooperation as new                                                          powers join the global arena. Using original and robust archival evidence, the book examines                                                    these dynamics in three cases: the United States and the maritime laws of war in the mid-                                                        nineteenth century; Japan and naval arms control in the interwar period; and India and                                                              nuclear non-proliferation in the Cold War. This study shows that the future of contemporary                                                      international order depends on the ability of international institutions to address the status                                                        ambitions of rising powers such as China and India.
