Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the issue of global governance or world order and takes up five mechanisms that have, since the nineteenth century, provided some semblance of order in the world. Those five are: imperialism, nationalism, regionalism, internationalism, and transnationalism. The chapter examines the Russo-Japanese war as an important episode in terms of each. The instability of the imperialist system was revealed during the Great War and ultimately led to its replacement by a system of nationalism, that is, a world order to be built on the existence and cooperation of independent nations. Trans-Pacific relations provide yet another framework in which to view the significance of the Russo-Japanese war. Transnationalism, in contrast to internationalism, may be taken to refer essentially to transactions among non-state actors across national boundaries.

Keywords: Great War; imperialism; internationalism; nationalism; regionalism; Russo-japanese war; transnationalism
