The Terms of Order

The Terms of Order

Cedric J. Robinson contends that our perception of political order is an illusion, maintained by political and social theorists who share a dependence on the concept of leadership as a basis for describing and prescribing social order.

Robinson presents examples of historically developed “stateless” societies with social organizations that suggest conceptual alternatives to the ways political order has been conceived in the West.
