Abstract

Liberals, Socialists, Internationalists, Jews* ABIGAIL GREEN University of Oxford N his landmark 1997 book Cultural Internationalism and World Order, IAkira Iriye set out to ‘show that it is perfectly possible to narrate the drama of international relations without giving principal roles to separate national existence’. Thus he sought to ‘downplay the theme of power’ by emphasising instead the role of ‘individuals and groups of people from different lands’ in seeking to develop an alternative community of nations through cross-national cooperation and interchange. Historians and social scientists have certainly heeded Iriye’s call. This new historiography has highlighted the long-term significance of internationalism, its deep roots in the nineteenth century, and its role in shaping the twentieth century. In this context, Glenda Sluga has emphasised both the importance of ‘objective internationalism’ as a historic preoccupation, and the mutually constitutive nature of nationalism and internationalism more generally. International gatherings like the Hague Peace Conferences * I would like to thank David Feldman, Ruth Harris, Eliyahu Stern, and the editors of this special issue for their feedback on this article. I am also grateful to the Arts and Humanities Research Council for supporting this work through a Leadership Fellowship. Akira Iriye, Cultural Internationalism
